START myResearch

Electronic Research Administration

Since many federal agencies and other sponsors have mandated the electronic submission of proposals, electronic research administration (ERA) has been developed for the University of Illinois system. The number of federal agencies requiring electronic submission through Grants.gov is expected to increase rapidly as a result of a congressional mandate requiring agencies to move from paper to electronic systems. Non-federal organizations also continue to move toward electronic systems in an effort to streamline the proposal process.

Request NSF, NIH, or Grants.gov account.

Built on Kuali Coeus, the START myResearch portal is available to view current and pending proposals.  The pre-award electronic submission tool, START myProposals, is also available, starting August 2019. Links and job aids can be found on the START myResearch webpage. Please contact us for training.
