Managing Grant Information

We encourage all faculty members to provide information about the grants they've received that provide a percent credit to the CARC, direct funds to the CARC, and/or were awarded based on use of the CARC's resources.

To enter grant information, click the green "Add Grant" button from the Project Detail page of the project your grant was awarded for.

  • Title: Enter the full title of the grant provided by the funding agency.
  • Grant Number from funding agency: Enter the grant number provided by the funding agency. If this grant is still pending, enter 0000.
  • Role: Choose from Principal Investigator (PI), Co-Principal Investigator (CoPI), or Senior Personnel (SP).
  • Grant PI Full Name: If you're not the PI, enter the PI's full name. We use this to ensure that we're not counting the same grant multiple times.

    • Other funding agency: Enter the agency's name if not found in the list.
  • Other award number: If there are several numbers given to the grant.

  • Percent credit to CARC Resources: This is the number listed on your USC Sponsored Projects form for a grant submission as financial credit to the department/unit. It is found in the credit distribution section. If you listed a percent of the grant to give to the CARC, enter that here. If not, enter 0.
  • Direct funding to CARC Resources: Funds budgeted specifically for CARC services, hardware, software, and/or personnel support. If none, enter 0.
  • Total amount awarded: Total amount you were awarded in the grant. We use this to show how much the CARC is supporting in research dollars.
