Grants.gov Changes Coming

Effective 12/31/17, Grants.gov officially retire the current Legacy PDF Application Package method or proposal submission and replace it with an online environment called Workspace.  Workspace is a web-based application system that allows a grant team to access and edit multiple forms simultaneously within an application.  This will not affect the submission of proposals through NSF FastLane or NIH ASSIST.

Michigan Tech researchers, investigators, and staff (known as Organization applicants in Workspace) will now be required to register themselves with Grants.gov and are encouraged to register as soon as possible.  Please see the “Quick Steps” for assistance during the registration process.  Once registered and ready to work on a proposal, contact an analyst in the Sponsored Programs Office (SPO) to initiate a Workspace application by calling (906) 487-2226 or emailing rsch@mtu.edu

For more information about Grants.gov Workspace, please review the Grants.gov training resources or contact SPO for assistance
