Once a decision has been reached to write a proposal for external funding, PRIOR APPROVAL MUST BE GIVEN to proceed. The Research and Sponsored Programs Manager must give permission for the project before the proposal is written. The “Internal Review and Approval Form” should be completed and signed to indicate that the permission for the project has been granted. A copy of this form should be given to the Research and Sponsored Programs office.

ANY AND ALL Partnership grants (i.e. collaboration with another group such as the Choctaw Nation) MUST receive PRIOR APPROVAL before proposal work should begin. Please contact Research and Sponsored Programs office at extension 2142 for additional information.


This is a reminder that if you plan to do any research that involves human subjects, you must get approval of this research from the Human Subject Research Review Committee. You can get a copy of the application from SOSU’s website. Click on “faculty,” then “committees,” then finally the “Human Subjects Research Review Committee.” The form will be at the bottom of the page. Please complete this form and be sure to answer every question specifically by number. Include all supporting materials. The completed application should be sent to Dr. Brooks Flippen in the Department of Social Sciences, Administration 301. Any questions should be directed to Dr. Flippen at or X2338. Thank you.


Once the project has been approved and the proposal written, the proposal should be routed for appropriate signatures AT LEAST TWO WEEKS PRIOR to the due date of the proposal in order to be sure the proposal will be approved and submitted in a timely manner.
