Grant Submission

All grant and contract applications must be reviewed (and signed where applicable) by Research Development & Services (Support Services Building, room 5150) prior to submission to the funding agency.

In addition to Funding Agency instructions, researchers should follow Western’s procedures as set by Research Development and Services.

Principal Investigators / Applicants

1. Ensure that you are eligible to hold a research account at Western


2. Complete a ROLA proposal for your grant application. ROLA (Research On-Line Administration) is an internal electronic system, which is used by researchers to obtain Faculty approval of grant applications.

Karen Kueneman will complete data entry in the ROLA system for FIMS, Law and Music researchers.

Note: If the grant competition that you are applying to is not listed on the ROLA funding opportunities page, contact rolahelp@uwo.ca for assistance.


3. Provide one copy of your grant application to the Faculty Research Officer and to Research Development & Services.

Note: Submit your Research Grant/Contract Application, bearing the Faculty’s signature (if required) to Research Development & Services (RD&S) (Support Services Building, room 5150) at least 5 days prior to the agency’s deadline unless RD&S has set an alternative internal deadline.


4. If the funding opportunity requires an ink signature (many signatures are now done electronically, for instance many CIHR and SSHRC programs), obtain the following approval signatures on the grant application in the order listed:

  • Faculty Signature
  • Research Development & Services (Institutional Signature)

2. If the grant/contract application requires a signature from the co-applicant’s organization/Institution, this signature must be obtained from Research Development & Services, not from the Faculty.
