The NSF FastLane system uses Internet technology to facilitate the way NSF does business with the research, education and related communities.  The NSF FastLane system is available for proposal preparation, submission and status review as well as post-award administrative activities.

Unless otherwise specified in the solicitation, proposers may opt to submit proposals electronically either via (Cayuse 424) or via the NSF FastLane system, though all collaborative proposals submitted as separate submissions from multiple organizations must utilize the NSF FastLane system.

Use this form to request registration with the NSF FastLane system.  Once your registration has been completed, you will receive a notification email from the Office for Sponsored Research and Award Administration (OSRAA) containing important account and reference information.  You may want to save this message for future reference. 

If you have questions or encounter difficulties with this form, please contact OSRAA via
