Tips for Collaborative Research Pre-Proposals

The following is a proposal development tool for collaborative research grant applicants— specifically, a set of tips to consider at the pre-proposal stage of the application process. 

These tips are informed by an analysis of reviewer comments about pre-proposal submissions to prior calls for collaborative research applications, as well as program staff observations from prior review processes. 

Applicants are encouraged to review the tips alongside the pre-proposal guidance to gain additional insight about the kinds of details to include in each section of their narrative, as well as suggestions for how to present the information.
