Manage Your Award


Managing a grant can be overwhelming! In collaboration with the College of Education Principle/Co- Investigator(s), the COERO Research Coordinator for Post-Award Administration provides financial management assistance, guidance, and consultations. Support is provided to navigate and explain the many processes associated with receiving an award and provide advice for unique situations that can occur due to unexpected project changes after proposal submission, during award negotiations, or new developments in any active project year.


Should you have a question and are unsure to whom you should address it, please contact the Post-Award Research Coordinator to point you in the right direction!
