Cayuse Resources

The Cayuse Research Suite is NYU’s system to support the submission of proposals to external sponsors (Cayuse 424). It also allows for management of the proposal submission and award process and provides a framework for tracking and reporting on sponsored project activities (Cayuse SP). Because it is a single sign-on system, once you are registered, access to Cayuse is via NYUHome’s Research tab. No additional password is required.
