The Office of Institutional Partnership at Georgetown University  (OIP) – assists faculty in seeking and securing support for their programs, projects and research from corporate, foundation and association donors.

Please contact ORS Research Development Specialists for any questions:

For help with writing or editing a Project Narrative or Scope of Work, please contact Dr. Carole Sargent, Director of Scholarly Publications (cs432@georgetown.edu)

Research Life Cycle is a multi-step process comprised of the 5 steps: Proposal Development; Proposal Review and Submission, Award Notification and Negotiation, Award Management and Award Close Out. Visit the Office of Research Services (ORS) to meet our staff and find contact information for all types of research queries.

All proposals are required to be routed in GU-PASS for institutional review and approval prior to the sponsor’s deadline. All faculty and staff can access GU-PASS “anytime-anywhere” by using their GU Net IDs and passwords and GU-supported browsers (Firefox, Chrome, and Internet Explorer). For FAQ for GU Pass please go here.

To facilitate the navigation on GU Pass we have created this GU Pass Job Aid.
