Grant Submission Timeline

Our staff is here to assist you through your proposal development. We often receive a high volume of requests for services. Because of this, same-day to OSP requests for service (four business days before sponsor deadline) will be accommodated at the discretion of Grant Coordinators, and based on work-flow availability. Same-day to sponsor requests for service will not be accommodated under any circumstances.

To make sure every request gets the full attention it deserves, we ask that you adhere to the following timeline when you contact our office:

3 weeks before your deadline, please notify us of your plans to submit by completing our Request for Services Form.

9 business days before your deadline, please work with your Proposal Support grant coordinator to finalize your budget and budget justification.

4 business days before your deadline, please submit your Cayuse proposal for OSP review with all required attachments, including a draft of your proposal.
