Experts Directory: Grants

Sponsored grants have been imported to Experts Directory from the Grants & Contracts Financial Administration (GCFA) Office records.

Grants not processed by the GCFA Office are entered manually as "Other Funding" or a "Proposed or Unfunded Grant." This includes awards from departments or colleges or grants received prior to employment at OSU.

How to Request Changes to Your Grants

Please fill out the support form linked here. If you are making multiple changes to multiple grants (e.g. correcting typos, capitalization errors, etc.), it is recommended that you download your CV from Experts Directory (go to Edit My Profile > CV and Reports in the upper right corner), and, using the Track Changes function in Microsoft Word, make the desired changes and upload them to the support form. Please do not manually add anyone to the grant. If the grant is missing a PI or co-PI, submit the request on the form.
