NSF proposal preparation
It is preferable to use FASTlane for the creation of NSF proposals although they may be completed and routed for approval through Cayuse 424. For more information about how to use Cayuse424 see http://ursa.research.gsu.edu/ursa/funding/proposal-development/cayuse-424-information/
These resources will assist you to prepare and submit an NSF grant application. Always notify OSPA when you plan to submit a grant.
FASTLane — All PIs submitting NSF grant applications must be registered with FASTLane. To register, complete the FASTLane registration form and email to your OSPA representative at least four weeks before grant deadline.
