College of Science - Proposal Support Services

The College of Science supports faculty success! The proposal support unit within the COS Research Development Unit is designed to assist faculty with proposal preparation support.

If you would like assistance, email to set up an appointment.

Please submit your proposal through Cayuse SP at least a week in advance of the due date. OSRRA requires a minimum of 3-days for review and it can often take a few days to get the proposal authorized by all of the units.  Please refer to the suggested proposal timeline for more information or the 'tools' page for links and templates.

The new NSF PAPPG 20-1 is effective 1 June 2020. There are quite a few updates, particularly use of an NSF approved Biosketch template and current and pending template.
