Sponsor Application Forms
The days of making multiple paper copies of your proposal and shipping them to the sponsor are fast coming to an end! As sponsors adopt electronic submission, they increasingly require electronic forms, and requirements are still in flux. Forms are often combined with or posted alongside the guidelines for applying. This page has links to application forms and guidelines for several programs and resources.

This section of the site pertains primarily to research proposals. For more about institutional proposals,
Many options are available to fund your next project. These lists include some of the major external funding sources.
Grant-related forms fall into two general categories: internal forms, required by Middlebury College, and donor application forms, required by the funding entity.
Middlebury College Forms are used to document grant-related institutional issues.
The Sponsored Research Office and the Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations are responsible for supporting all grant-related activities at Middlebury.
Grant Seeking Guidelines

As part of the leave application due on August 1 faculty will prepare a plan for seeking outside funding, a list of external sources that appear suitable for funding their project, indicating those for which they plan to apply. Faculty are expected to apply to any such external sources for which they are eligible, normally at least three, in particular to those sources that may cover at least 20% of salary and/or provide support for relocation costs.
