General FAQ

Q1: Can faculty submit a proposal through the NMSU Foundation?

A1: All proposals for external funding must be submitted by Research Administration Services (RAS) except for those where the proposal must be submitted by a 501(c)3 organization. In this case, faculty should contact the NMSU Foundation with the understanding that unit works independently from RAS.
