Pre- and Post-Award Administrator
Sharon Ligue has been with the Institute since August 1999, and has served as Pre- and Post-Award Administrator since June 2004. Sharon provides a wide range of support for the entire life cycle of a sponsored project. From identifying a potential funding agency/program to developing the proposal and its budget, she provides pre-award services to Members, postdoctoral researchers, and graduate students.
After awards are made, she coordinates all the post-award services, which may include account/budget setup, subaward processing, periodic reporting to the sponsor, transaction review and reconciliation, and award closeouts.
Prior to the Institute, Sharon worked for the SSD LBC. She’s been with UChicago since October 1990.
Sharon enjoys spending time with family, particularly her six grandchildren, when not in the office.
