SAGE: Creating NIH Proposals in Grant Runner

Grant Runner enables you to complete Grants.gov applications for many National Institutes of Health (NIH) funding opportunities directly within SAGE. It integrates the standard government grant application forms (also known as the SF424 Forms) with the UW electronic Grants and Contract (eGC1) application and SAGE Budget. With the click of a button, the Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) can electronically submit your application via Grants.gov to the sponsor. This course will introduce experienced SAGE users to Grant Runner. Through a combination of a lecture and guided practice, participants will create a Grant Runner eGC1 while reviewing the stages of the Grant Runner submission process. Participants are expected to take SAGE: Creating & Submitting eGC1s prior to taking this course. We also recommend taking Introduction to Sponsored Project Budgets and SAGE Budget before taking this course.


Those interested in using Grant Runner for NIH Grants who have some SAGE experience.
