Manage a Grant

If you are a grantee or a member of a project team, this information will help you find out about how to manage your SARE award. It may also be used to understand SARE’s expectations before submitting a grant application.

Key Management Points

  • Grants are paid as reimbursements.
  • Save project-related receipts and invoice on a timely basis. Download invoice template.
  • Acknowledge SARE in all journal articles, bulletins, guides, websites and all other resources developed with SARE funding.
  • Reports should be timely, complete, and useful.
  • Remember that outreach is an ongoing part of your project–don’t wait to do all of it until the end.
  • If any concerns, challenges or changes to your budget or project arise, contact the grant coordinator for your program.

Move to Electronic Banking during COVID-19

If you or your organization has not already done so, we strongly recommend that you move to receive project expense reimbursements electronically as there may be a delay in receiving paper checks due to reduced staffing levels due to COVID-19 until the University resumes normal business operations.
