Proposals
Before You Prepare A Proposal

  • If not already eligible to submit the proposal, you must request and obtain Principal Investigator eligibility.
  • For the National Science Foundation, you will need to obtain a Fastlane ID. Contact your Research Administrator for assistance.
  • For the National Institutes of Health, you will need to obtain an ERA Commons ID. Contact your Research Administrator for assistance.
  • Ensure that your Conflict of Interest disclosure is updated.
  • There may be additional registrations, IDs, etc. that are needed prior to proposal submission, and some can take several weeks. Contact your Research Administrator for assistance.
  • If available, register for updates on the funding opportunity. This is important in case the sponsor updates the guidelines in any way (such as the deadline or additional clarification details).
