Submission 2.0
This four-week program helps faculty take a previously unsuccessful NIH or NSF research proposal and improve it for resubmission! Participants form a cohort and learn together how to strengthen past proposals by addressing reviewers’ critiques. Each participant receives $1,000 in professional development funding upon completing the program and another $1,000 upon resubmission of the proposal. Contact Dr. Amy Adamson, Associate Dean for Research, ( to learn more.

Proposal Development in Cayuse SP
All proposals for external grant or fellowship funding must go through UNCG’s Cayuse SP system. Our office can help you navigate that system. When you are ready to begin a proposal, let us know by submitting our CAS Intent to Apply form. After submitting the form, you will be contacted by Chad Fogleman, the Pre-Award Grants Administrator ( Chad can start a Cayuse proposal form and work with you to collect or draft required documents — including a proposal budget and budget justification. When the proposal is ready, it is routed through Cayuse for departmental and CAS approvals, then reviewed by the Office of Sponsored programs. If OSP requires revisions, we can help. Learn more.
