Program for Funding Reviews of Research Proposals


The Office of Faculty Enrichment & Engagement (OFEE), in collaboration with the Office of Research & Sponsored Programs (ORSP), is pleased to announce the implementation of a new program to support faculty submitting proposals for extramural funding. Effective December 1, 2021 through June 30, 2023, funds will be available for faculty and staff that wish to have a research proposal reviewed by an external evaluator. The criteria for this program are detailed below:


  • Who May Apply: Any faculty member that is on the tenure track, non-tenure track, or is tenured. NEOMED staff are also welcome to submit an application,
  • Eligible Granting Agencies: All granting agencies (government, public and private) will be given consideration,
  • Application: A brief application that is intended to collect basic faculty or staff information, funding agency, and evaluator information will be completed and submitted with a copy of the proposal. The application may be submitted up to three (3) months in advance of the agency deadline,
  • Submission Deadline: A proposal must be submitted to OFEE at least 30-days prior to the deadline with the sponsoring agency. No exceptions will be made,
  • External Reviewer: The submitting party will recommend up to two (2) external reviewers that are not on the NEOMED faculty. The external reviewer must be able to complete a proposal review with comments and recommended modifications within a 10-day period,
  • Communication: All communication with the external reviewer will be completed by the faculty member with a “cc” to the OFEE. Our goal is to create an efficient system that is supportive of research efforts,
  • Maximum Support: A faculty member may receive funds for up to two (2) proposals within any academic year for review by an external reviewer,
  • Compensation: A grant reviewer will be compensated up to $750 for their efforts. The external reviewer must complete and return an executed W-9 form via the NEOMED system and submit an invoice in order to receive compensation,
  • Number of Reviews: Funding to support a total of twenty (20) grant reviews will be dedicated during the current academic year.
