Templates and Guidance for Proposal Submissions
Though templates and guidance are shared below, not all competitions require every one of these forms and specific guidance varies with each competition. Refer to the specific RFP you are responding to, or communications from IISG staff, for exactly what should be included with your submission.
If you have issues with these templates, please request assistance rather than altering the forms.
Project Summary Form (Microsoft Word)
90-4 Budget Form (Fillable PDF, available in Microsoft Word or Excel on request)
Abbreviated Environmental Compliance Questionnaire (Microsoft Word)
Purdue University Entity Profile (Fillable PDF, not required for applicants from Purdue University or Purdue University Northwest)
Purdue University Letter of Intent Form (Fillable PDF, not required for applicants from Purdue University or Purdue University Northwest)
Purdue University Letter of Intent Form for 2020 Faculty Scholars Applicants (Fillable PDF, not required for applicants from Purdue University or Purdue University Northwest)
Data Management Plan (Microsoft Word, this format for the data sharing and management plan is not required, but may be helpful)
Budget Forms and Narrative (PDF) *All projects require a 90-4 form for each year of funding plus a separate narrative. Multi-year projects should also include a 90-4 for the entire project (i.e., if requesting support for a 2-year project, provide a 90-4 for Year 1, a 90-4 for Year 2, and a 90-4 for the total funding request over both years).
Project Summary and Proposal Narrative/Plan of Work (PDF) *For small projects, Narrative/Plan of Work guidance may differ from this. Always refer first and foremost to guidance in the RFP or communications from IISG staff.
