Expert Review of Grant Proposals

You have not filled in all of the required fields. Please fill in the fields below outlined in red.

The Office of Research and Economic Development is pleased to provide support to facilitate external expert review of extramural grant proposals. This type of peer review is valuable. Your proposal will benefit from critical feedback similar to that provided by a panel review and you will have the opportunity to address potential criticisms prior to proposal submission.

To take full advantage of this service, please request expert external review at least six weeks in advance of the proposal submission date. When you make your request, you will be asked to provide a list of at least four experts who, in your opinion, will provide objective, critical feedback regarding your proposal draft.

Reviewers are usually allowed two weeks to provide feedback, which means you should plan to have a draft ready for expert external review no less than one month prior to the submission date. Draft documents that may be included in the package sent for external expert review typically include:

  • Abstract or Project Summary
  • Project Narrative
  • Budget
  • Biographical Sketches
  • Introduction (if the proposal is a resubmission)
