When submitting a proposal for an external funding opportunity, many sponsors will require the application to be submitted through a specific submission portal. It is critical to review the guidelines early in the process to determine which portal is required as the PI may need to create an individual account. These accounts often need to be linked to the institutional profile within the portal, and therefore, the Office of Research Administration may need to approve access. Below you will find how-to documents for common submission portals:
- Grants.gov (pdf)
- NSF Research.gov (pdf)
- NSF Fastlane (pdf)
- NSF Proposal File Update Instructions (pdf)
If you have any questions, please reach out to your Office of Research Administration contact.
