Cayuse 424

Log In to Cayuse 424


Cayuse Proposals (Cayuse) is available to Emory investigators for the development and submission of federal grant proposals. It is important to note that, while Cayuse Proposals is available for more than 97% of federal grant opportunities available in, there may be a few programs for which Cayuse Proposals cannot be used.

To submit those applications which cannot be submitted through Cayuse Proposals, investigators will use the Workspace function. Workspace has replaced the old Adobe forms kits. Workspace is an online system through which federal agency proposals can be developed. Although Workspace is available, if a federal program is available for submission via Cayuse Proposals, Cayuse Proposals must be used rather than Workspace. (And exception to Cayuse Proposals is the use of Fastlane/ for NSF proposal submission.) Proposals to be submitted using either Cayuse or Workspace must still be routed to OSP through the Emory Proposal Express (EPEX) system. 

Please note that non-federal proposals are NOT submitted through Cayuse 424. These applications should be submitted in the manner prescribed by each agency.
