Kuali Research (KR) Training

The Kuali Research (KR) system is used for grant submission. The old version of KR was referred to as KC (Kuali Coeus) and you may still see that referenced. You will access KR to approve the proposal development (PD) document and complete project-based conflict of interest disclosures.

The Grant Services team uses KR to prepare your proposal development document, build your budget, and upload attachments. Our experienced staff manages the entire KR proposal process, ensuring that deadlines are met and the appropriate approvals are secured. 

If you would like to learn more about the system, the MSU Office of Sponsored Programs has a website of KR Training Materials. You can log into Kuali Research (KR) here using your MSU Net ID and password or access it from EBS by clicking on the Research Administration tile.
