IMPORTANT NOTE FOR SPRING 2022: The University of Virginia has replaced its homegrown research administration system, ResearchUVA, with the industry standard Software as a Service (SaaS) Huron Grants and Agreements system. The system is known as ResearchUVA Powered by Huron and launched in April 2022. ResearchUVA Powered by Huron contains two modules: the Grants module to develop, route, and submit proposals, as well as manage awards and award modifications; and the Agreements module to create and execute negotiated funded and non-funded agreements, including outgoing subawards. 

For any post-award requests during this transition period, please contact seas-postaward@virginia.edu. More details can be found here.
