Submitting Federal Proposals
- NSF proposals are submitted via fastlane and require one-time registration of principal investigators / project directors through Colgate's Grants Office.
- NIH proposals are submitted via grants.gov and require one-time registration for the project director / principal investigator in eRA Commons, through Colgate's Grants Office.
- For NEH fellowships and summer stipends, individual applicants must register with Grants.gov at https://www.grants.gov/web/grants/applicants.html. We recommend that faculty allow plenty of time to complete the registration. Contact the Grants Office staff at ext. 7451 if you need assistance.
