Per the USDE program officer, the College of Arts & Sciences has to be responsible (jointly, with the CoE and the LEA) for the project. That means that they need to review the project, determine whether they want to be involved and whether or how much they will need to be compensated for their involvement, assign a person with an Arts & Sciences appointment AS A CO-PI to oversee the project or a portion of the project – and have that person, their department head, and dean sign the transmittal form.
You can access the list of eligible high-need LEAs on the Teacher Quality website. Non-high-need LEAs may participate in Teacher Quality professional development activities, but projects are required to have at least one high-need school district as a formal partner.
If you have questions, contact the Teacher Quality Program Office at TQ@uga.edu or 706.542.4043.

|Review the request for proposal (RFP) to make sure you meet the qualifications (e.g., RFP may stipulate that you earned your Ph.D. within 5 years) and to make sure that the RFP supports work related to your research, teaching, or service goals. In addition, check the deadline listed on the RFP to determine if you can realistically meet it. Note: there may be an earlier deadline for a "Letter of Intent" (LOI).|
|Start planning the idea and create a draft that includes a budget (see ORSSP website for useful guide-lines and information: http://www.georgiasouthern.edu/research/orssp/pre-award_proposal_development.html). Again, carefully read the RFP to make sure your idea fits the goal of the program. Call the program officer or ask the Associate Dean, Graduate Education and Research (ADGER) to make the call to get early feedback on your idea. Email the program officer your draft in advance of calling to discuss your idea. This early feedback may make a big difference in whether or not the project gets funded.|
|Meet with your department chair to ensure that any requests for course releases can be covered with-in the timeframe of your project.|
|Develop a list of who you would like to partner with inside and outside of your institution (Note: Pro-posals with some partners outside the institution are often favored). If you need help finding partners, contact the ADGER.|
|Begin confirming the partnerships, getting letters of support.|
|Meet with Office of Research Services and Sponsored Programs (ORSSP) at least 2 months before the deadline to work through the budget and other required paperwork. You may also need to submit an IRB, or concrete plans to submit one, to work with human participants.|
|Finish writing proposal with partners. Ask people external to the grant to review it for feedback (e.g., your advisory board members, ADGER, colleagues, etc.).|
|Confirm that you have the necessary paperwork from ORSSP and signatures from the COE (e.g., De-partment Chair; ADGER). These individuals will need to sign the Internal Approval Form that you will find on the ORSSP website (http://www.georgiasouthern.edu/research/orssp/forms.html.) Give them plenty of 'heads up' to make sure they are available to sign your paperwork!|
|Submit/upload your grant.|
|Send a copy to the ADGER for his/her records.|
|Funding notification will be given to ORSSP first and they will contact you to notify you of the award. When you hear the good news, please be sure to contact all collaborative partners (co-PIs, schools, etc.) so that you may start implementing the project. And don't forget to inform your department chair and the ADGER so that assistance in implementing the project can begin immediately.|
