Along with the sense of accomplishment that comes with winning a research grant, you should be aware of the responsibilities involved, both to the funding agency and the University. Misuse of funds awarded, or non-compliance with the foundation’s terms, may jeopardize your professional reputation and future submissions, as well as possibly undermine the University's relations with the foundation.

Financial and Scientific Reports
Most research grants, especially of external funding agencies, require periodic financial reports during the project’s duration. The report outlines the utilization of research funds and expenses. Financial reports are issued by the budget officers at the Authority for Research and Development, in close cooperation with the researcher and his/her team.
In addition, funding agencies often require scientific reports, either during the grant’s term or only at its conclusion. The report should describe the research activity done within the scope of the grant and its scientific outcomes. It is up to the researcher to prepare such a report, in coordination with the Authority for Research and Development, and according to the foundation’s requirements.
Some foundations supply their own forms to be submitted, and/or instructions for compiling such reports.
