Submit your proposal as early as possible.

Benefits of early submission

Do faculty submission dates differ from central submission dates?

Yes. When developing your proposal, consider internal faculty approval processes and timings. For more details contact your faculty office.

Is there flexibility in submitting proposals?

You are invited to submit your proposal any time, however to guarantee approval for 2020 offerings, proposals have to be received by the latest recommended date.
