Grant Submission Assistance Guidelines

The programs detailed below can be used individually or together. It is our belief that using both embodies best practices and will maximize the prospects for success.

PEER-REVIEW COORDINATION
The Peer-Review Program connects investigators with colleagues on or off campus who can provide a scientific review of the proposal. Requirements for participation here.

GRANT EDITING

The Grant Consulting and Editing Program connects investigators with an NIH proposal specialist, who will help hone and “sell” the proposal. Prior peer-review is recommended, but not required. Requirements for participation here. 


Please direct any further questions to RGS.review@campusad.msu.edu

All investigators involved in multi-investigator proposals must agree to the project’s involvement in the program and designate one investigator to lead participation in the program. 


Cost Share Breakdown For the Grant Submission Assistance Initiative

 

All costs will be split as follows:

Office of the Vice President for Research and Graduate Studies = 60%
Your College = 40%

Please note: 

  • Amounts exceeding $250 for peer review will not be split or covered by the Office of the Vice President for Research and Graduate Studies)
  • The Office of the Vice President for Research and Graduate Studies will only be communicating with, and charging, the colleges. If a college wishes to split their costs with corresponding departments, they must do so at their own discretion. 
  • The Office of the Vice President for Research and Graduate Studies will handle the processing of payments to the peer-reviewers and editors. The colleges will then be charged at the end of this process for their portion, based on their faculty use.
