UCSC Research Development

proposal intake formStart your proposal here

  • To make the proposal process easier we created this simple online intake form. Just click on the button above and fill out some basic information about your proposal (should take about 5 to 10 minutes).
  • After you submit the form, a Cayuse SP record will automatically be created for you and an OSP Proposal Analyst will guide you through the next steps.
  • If you already created a Cayuse SP record, just be sure to let your OSP Proposal Analyst know by submitting an OSP Notification form.
