2021-2022 FY Board of Regents Support Fund

BoRSF proposal season is upon us, and the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP) is here to help!

This page is provided to aid in proposal development and support, and we hope you find it useful. We are always happy to assist; however, please note that ORSP resources are in high demand during this time.  Therefore, to make best use of ORSP services and to avoid spending time gathering basic knowledge or recapping published information, investigators are strongly encouraged to familiarize themselves with relevant BoRSF RFPs and the materials published here. Of course, if, after reviewing this information, you still have questions, please do not hesitate to contact your assigned ORSP Staff member or the ORSP office at 337-482-5811.


Informational Sessions

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, BoRSF program managers are unable to travel for regional meetings with staff and faculty related to grant and endowment funding opportunities. All individuals interested in discussing programs and projects with program managers are welcome to email or call at their convenience through October 15, the final day for questions about current-cycle RFPs. Contact information for individual program managers is available in the RFPs and BoRSF's website, questions may also be submitted via email to
support@laregents.org.

Faculty and staff interested in scheduling appointments to speak with program managers may register via this link. Available dates and times, along with this registration link, are also available in the meetings announcement on BoRSF's website.


BoRSF RFPs

Interested faculty should review the complete RFPs, which are available on the Board of Regents website.

Requests for proposals (RFPs) and submission deadlines for FY 2021-2022 are now available for the following competitive grant programs/subprograms:

LOGAN - BoR's Louisiana Online Grant Automation Network

Access to the BoR’s submission system, LOGAN, is available at this link.

New users will need to create a PI account in advance of posted deadlines. Previous users may need to reset their password via the LOGAN website if unable to login.

Technical issues with LOGAN must be directed to LOGAN Support, via this link.  ORSP is not able to assist users with technical support for LOGAN. 

BoRSF Eligible Disciplines

Many BoRSF programs have rotating disciplines that are eligible to submit each funding cycle. BoRSF's chart of eligible disciplines can be accessed via this link.

These disciplines can be found within each RFP. Additionally, eligible disciplines can be found within the program specific Fact Sheets below.

NOTE: Due to BoRSF certification requirements, proposal submissions that fall outside of the listed FY 2021-2022 eligible disciples list will not be submitted to BoR by ORSP.

Successful, Sample BoRSF Proposals

Copies of successful BoRSF proposals have been collected by ORSP and can be found via our Sample Proposal Library available in Moodle.  Faculty may self-enroll in this Moodle page to gain access.

Instructions on accessing this Moodle site are available here. Please ensure you're using the old Moodle site, located at mdl2.louisiana.edu until the IT team can migrate all functionality to the new Moodle update.

Should you wish to view a successful proposal that is not included in this collection, please contact BoRSF directly by following the instructions found here.


ORSP Proposal Preparation & Guidance

In conjunction with the FY 2021-2022 BoRSF competition, ORSP provides the following documents to jump-start your proposal preparation efforts.

Narrative, Budget & BoRSF Form Templates

Please feel free to use the narrative templates (Word) below as a guide for responding to BoRSF RFPs.  However, as these templates only address the narrative portion of the overall submission, they should not be used as a substitution for reading and responding to the RFP in full. 
Also provided below are budget calculation templates (EXCEL) and budget justification templates (Word). Please use these templates for your FY 2021-2022 submissions, as the appropriate fringe and tuition rates, etc. have been included in these templates.

Do not use the federal funding templates found elsewhere on the ORSP website for BoRSF submissions.

Friendly Routing Reminders!

Proposals must be submitted to ORSP no later than the posted internal deadlines to allow for adequate time for review, revisions, and approvals prior to the BoRSF deadlines.
ORSP cannot guarantee that proposals submitted after the internal deadline dates will be reviewed or submitted.

"Checking In Proposals" to ORSP

Full proposals routed to ORSP must also include:

  • Completed and signed Internal Proposal Approval Form (IPAF), aka the Routing Form.  Found here.
  • Cost share form, IF cost share is included in the project budget.  Found here.

Please note:

  • Incomplete proposals or those missing signatures will not be checked in.
  • Due to staff limitations and workload during this time, proposal documents and budgets must be routed in order to be reviewed.
  • If you have any questions on how to complete any of these documents, please do not hesitate to contact us for assistance.
