Proposal Central

ProposalCENTRAL is a one-stop website for finding, applying for and tracking grants offered by more than 100 non-profit and government funding organizations in health, biomedical and scientific research. ProposalCENTRAL boasts streamlined processes throughout the grant life cycle, from application to award and post-award management. Principal Investigators (PIs) interested in applying for grant opportunities through proposalCENTRAL are encouraged to work closely with their SAM Administrators throughout the proposal process, and submit their proposals in USCeRA for final “Institutional Review” a minimum of three business days before the proposal submission deadline [pdf].


Getting Started with ProposalCENTRAL

ProposalCENTRAL has collected support tools and contact information for help with the system in a central location for easy reference. Please keep this helpful information at hand as you register for the proposalCENTRAL and work through the steps to create and manage your proposals.

Your SAM Administrator will need Administrator access to your proposal.
Signature pages are often required by the various sponsors, so allow time to get the required signatures for the funding opportunity. Some opportunities require a chair’s or dean’s signature in addition to the SAM signature.
