NSF FastLane

FastLane is the National Science Foundation's (NSF) online website through which users can prepare and submit proposals, and users can review proposals and participate in panels.


Effective 3/26/2018 - NSF introduced a new centralized and streamlined account registration process to provide users with a single profile and unique identifier (NSF ID) for signing into FastLane and Research.gov.

SPA-eBiz will no longer create NSF accounts for new users.
