Oregon State University uses Cayuse as its web-based proposal development and submission system. After registering to use Cayuse, you will use your ONID username (all lower case) and your ONID password to access the website.
It is important to submit your proposal with sufficient time to obtain Department and College Administrator approval and allow three business days for Sponsored Program review and authorization. As with all research projects, OSRAA approval is required prior to proposal submission to the sponsor. OSRAA provides four tiers of service for proposal review.
Cayuse 424 can be used instead of Grants.gov (link 424 proposal to Cayuse SP proposal.) With the exception of collaborative proposals, Cayuse 424 can also be used to submit NSF proposals.
Within this section you will be able to find information for your cover page, budget, and limited submission opportunities. When submitting your proposal, it is important to ensure your cover page and related documents have correct information. Through the Cover Page/Application and Budgeting Information nodes you will be able to find everything you need to know about creating a successful proposal. Additionally, please refer to Limited Submissions to find if your intended sponsor has restricted submission policies or any limited funding opportunities. To find more information on the proposal cycle please refer to .
