The majority of proposal submissions are electronic and can be submitted in a variety of ways, e.g., as email attachments, through the Grants.gov portal or Proposal Central, or directly to a sponsor website.
For the majority of submissions to federal sponsors via the Grants.gov portal, Loma Linda University uses the LLeRA (Loma Linda electronic Research Administration) system-to-system (S2S) software.
Helpful Links and Tools for Electronic Submissions
- Log in to LLeRA (Request LLeRA Password)
- LLeRA Proposal Development Instructions
- Note: If you have a dual monitor system (e.g. 2 monitors hooked up to one computer), you may find it helpful to log in to LLeRA on one monitor screen and keep the LLeRA Proposal Development Instructions available for reference on the other screen.

When sponsors require a hard copy of the proposal to be mailed, the grant proposal must go through the normal approval process before being released to the PI for mailing. It is strongly suggested that the PI mail the proposal with a service that has tracking and delivery confirmation abilities.
