Grantsmanship Competencies

Our vision at UF is to develop an ever-expanding community that supports excellence in the sponsored programs that enhance the sciences, arts, outreach, and scholarship. We strive toward our vision by intentionally reducing administrative burden on faculty and by reducing risk to UF through supporting sponsored programs administration networking, education, and development of knowledge and skills.

In support of these stated goals, we have developed a competency model that will allow us to strategically target and measure the effectiveness of initiatives designed to obtain our vision. A person considered exceptional in sponsored program administration will be competent in the following grantsmanship topics and display the associated behaviors. Additionally, links may be provided to support development of associated behaviors.
