Each proposal will be evaluated by reviewers selected from various colleges within the UI.
Because the review panel is diverse, proposers are strongly encouraged to write for a nonexpert
. Proposers should read the Seed Grant Evaluation Sheet (below) to make sure
that their proposal addresses all of the criteria.
Reviewers will assign proposals a rank of Excellent, Very Good, Good, Fair, or Poor. The
reviewers will evaluate each proposal on the following:
- The degree to which the proposed work will initiate or contribute to a new or early
scholarly project that will support the PI’s career development.
- Overall quality and clarity of the proposal
- Degree to which the budget is reasonable and well‐justified
The reviewers will convene as a panel to discuss proposals and make funding
recommendations. The Research Council makes final funding decisions and may require
modifications in the budget as a condition of funding.
Award notifications are expected to be made in early April, 2013.
