Specific Aims Review

“there is no grantsmanship that will turn a bad idea into a good one…but there are many ways to disguise a good idea.” – unknown

An internal grants review team reviews specific aims and provides feedback prior to submission to an external funder. While faculty often have collaborators review/edit their proposal sections, this initiative is intended to solicit quick feedback from Falk faculty reviewers outside of the project/department (3-4 reviewers). The feedback is for the specific aims section, which informs other proposal components and is often the first glance reviewers have into your research ideas (if your funder does not require a specific aims section you may submit a comparable one-page document for review).
