Cayuse Sponsored Projects

What is Cayuse Sponsored Projects?

Cayuse Sponsored Projects (Cayuse SP) is a web-based system for submission of funding applications via Grants.gov. The system is easy to use and provides significant auto-filling of forms, extensive error checking, and the ability to see the entire proposal before submission. Cayuse Sponsored Projects accounts have been created for most USNH faculty and researchers. Should you need access please submit a request [see orange box above]. Once access is granted access USNH’s Cayuse system here

What can you apply for using Cayuse Sponsored Projects?

Cayuse should be used for electronic Grants.gov submissions to most federal agencies.

Important Dates: UNH Sponsored Programs Administration (SPA) recommends that you submit your application for institutional review a minimum of three business days in advance of the sponsor's submission deadline. This allows enough time for review, error correction, and resubmission before the deadline. It is certain that Grants.gov will slow down in the days and hours prior to a deadline because of limited bandwidth; early submission in Cayuse and communication with SPA staff will help to avoid missing deadlines due to technical issues beyond our control.
