Is it a Gift or a Grant and other Critical Funding Mechanism Clarifications
Your Staff Need to Know

What are the mechanisms for funding research and other activities at your institution and how do you handle them?
Most of us in research administration are familiar with the differences between awards we receive for federal financial assistance (grants and cooperative agreements) and those for federal procurement (contracts). But fewer of us seem to feel comfortable describing the differences between a gift and a grant. And to make things more confusing there are Material Transfer Agreements, Licensing Agreements, Consulting Agreements, Technical Service Agreements, Facilities Use Agreements, and Memoranda of Understanding– where do they all fit in? And regardless of how our institutions classify them internally, most of these agreements (even many “gifts”) are legally binding and considered “contracts” under the law.
Join this in-depth webinar that will explain the nature and context of various funding agreement types and how to handle them.
