Proposal Review Criteria
Proposals are judged on their overall quality. They should have high intrinsic value and intellectual or creative merit -- posing a significant question, exploring an important issue, addressing a challenging problem, or expressing an artistic idea. Projects should also hold out the promise of making worthwhile contributions to your field, to your professional development, or to the college's curricular needs.
Projects should be well-conceived, with achievable goals, a realistic schedule, and an accurate budget. Your proposal must be clearly written in a style that is comprehensible to a group of your colleagues who are not likely to be specialists in your field.
Finally, where relevant, R&D looks to the ancestry of the project. The applicant should provide information about publication track record and history of R&D grants. The previous history of grant applications should indicate the ability to accomplish what was promised, to use awarded funds prudently, and to file final reports as required. Multiple applications to R&D by a single individual will be considered based upon equitable distribution of funds.
