Research Administration and Sponsored Programs


Applying for funding is the process of taking a great idea and packaging in a sponsor’s required form and fit.  Most proposals possess three common elements, a statement of work, a budget, and a budget justification.

Cayuse 424

High Point University uses Cayuse 424 as its proposal management tool.  Cayuse 424 allows faculty to easily prepare, route, and submit a proposal.  Cayuse’s strength is its ease of use in preparing federal proposals.  Federal proposals must be prepared and routed through Cayuse 424.  RASP has a variety of resources to assist in applying for a research project.

Firefox or Explorer browsers are required for access to Cayuse 424. Chrome, Safari, and other browsers will not allow full use of the Cayuse 424 system. For more information, visit the Cayuse 424 Support Center.
