Do fellowships need to be routed through Sponsored Research?
Fellowships do not need to be routed through Sponsored Research if the fellow is paid directly by the funding agency and no authorized University signature is required. Applications for fellowships or scholarships that will be made to the University on behalf of an individual must be routed through the OSRA internal clearance process at proposal time. A student may be the PI on a fellowship as long as a faculty member serves as the co-PI. Please note that these applications need to adhere to the OSRA proposal deadlines addressed above in these FAQ.
