Program Grant Agreement

Program Grant Agreement

A Program Grant is a fixed-price agreement used when a sponsor desires to provide financial support of a program to be conducted by the University. It is not intended for the performance of testing services or fundamental research. Use of the Program Grant is not appropriate when the results of the program could be of commercial value to a sponsor. In such cases, the University’s Sponsored Research Agreement should be used.

Program Grants are treated as a ‘Restricted Grant’ in the University’s Funding Matrix (see Research Administration Policy RA04).

Funding Limitation: As with all fixed-price research agreements, Research Grants greater than $100,000 require the review and approval of the Office of Sponsored Programs prior to submission.
