Oracle Grants Management System (GMS)

All applications for grant funding are required to be submitted online in a software programme called Oracle GMS.

An Oracle GMS Access Form needs to be first completed, see the link below. To read more about the Grants Management System (GMS) the University uses to administer research funding, and to get training and support visit this Grant Management staff intranet page.

Once Oracle Help have received your completed Oracle Access Form, they will contact you in approximately one week with your Oracle username and password. They will also organise an Oracle GMS training session for you. The training session will take approximately 45 minutes and it will be organised to take place during a time that suits you.

If you have any questions about the Faculty of Health's Research and Leave Committee guidelines please contact Amy de Boer.
