Funding Tip 6 – Review the Criteria

Posted by on March 22nd, 2018 Posted in: Funding

How do you know what makes a good funding proposal? A proposal might be very well-written, but it won’t get funded if it doesn’t meet the review criteria of the funding agency. At the National Network of Libraries of Medicine, Middle Atlantic Region, we try to be very transparent in how we critique funding applications. The review team, consisting of NNLM MAR staff and outside reviewers, read each application carefully. Each reviewer completes a review sheet that tracks to what extent the application meets the criteria. We include the criteria in the Requests for Proposal, so that applicants can write to the criteria.

Today’s funding tip – Review the criteria before writing the application. After writing a draft, you may want to ask a colleague to read the application and review it using the criteria. Sometimes fresh eyes notice gaps or areas of potential confusion.

Funding applications are due April 13 by 11pm ET. Check out more tips on our blog.
