The Application Process


Application e-Correspondence

After an application package is submitted, the AR will receive a series of four e-mails. The titles of the four e-mails are:


Application e-Correspondence

And, there’s one more…

  • If accepted for peer review, the application will be assigned a NIFA application number (e.g., YEAR-XXXXX). This number should be cited on all future correspondence.


The Review Process

  • The first part of the process is the administrative review

    • A main focus of the administrative review is to facilitate the peer review

  • The second part of the process is a peer review


Administrative Review


The Peer-Review Process

  • Reviewers for a particular year are selected based on the types of applications that are submitted

    • All panelists are considered experts in their fields

    • Panelists can include: academia, federal labs, NGOs, industry, technology providers

    • Around 30 % of the panelists are from the previous year

    • A number of diversity criteria are applied before invitations are sent


The Peer-Review Process

  • Each application must be reviewed by at least 3 external reviewers

    • Panelists are generally assigned 10 to 20 applications to review

    • Reviewers are provided with the RFA and the evaluation criteria

    • Applications that don’t adhere to the guidelines and criteria are not likely to be funded
