ORSP Offers Free External Pre-Review of Federal Proposals

ORSP will consider and pay for a pre-review of your proposal to a federal agency, if the narrative section is submitted one month before the proposal is due.

Include in your e-mail names of several federally funded researchers who are working in the subject/research area of your proposal.
