External Proposal Reviews

Proposal reviews by an external consulting firm are available to PIs. The reviews are conducted by Washington, DC-based consultants with extensive proposal development and review expertise.

Draft proposals for review are submitted through Research & Innovation at the University of Nevada, Reno.

All reviews are returned to the PI in time to make revisions prior to submission to the funding agency. Proposals must be submitted for review at least four weeks in advance of the agency submission date.

To request an external review, email the following to Ana de Bettencourt-Dias, Assistant Vice President for Research and Innovation at abd@unr.edu:

  1. Your completed submission form
  2. Your proposal in Word format
  3. The original RFP or solicitation notice
  4. Your biosketch (for NIH grants)
