Electronic Research Administration

Many federal agencies use Electronic Research Administration (eRA) systems for grant submission and award administration. The National Science Foundation (NSF) uses Fastlane; the National Institutes of Health (NIH) uses the eRA Commons, and most other federal agencies use Grants.gov.

To request an eRA Commons and/or a Fastlane account, please send an email from your university account to cayusesupport@memphis.edu.
