College of Sciences (COS) Research and Facilities welcomes you to our website where Faculty and Staff will find answers to many of your Pre-Award proposal preparation, Post-Award departmental and Facilities questions.

COS Pre-Award assists faculty during the proposal submission process and helps identify resources to make our researchers more competitive, including managing several internal programs.

COS Post-Award supports faculty and staff acting as a liaison with other UCF offices to ensure smooth management of grants and contracts.

COS Facilities provides support to Faculty and Staff in all areas of Facilities & Safety, including classroom and lab safety, building access, property and inventory control, space utilization, renovation, and new construction.

Thanks to our research faulty and support staff for all you do to continue pursuing excellence in research in our community and beyond in these unprecedented times.
