Proposal Development Program: Revise & Resubmit

Synopsis of the Program: Revise & Resubmit

The R-EDGE Proposal Development Program: Revise & Resubmit is intended to support the teacher-scholar model by providing up to 8 WTUs of assigned time and/or additional compensation along with specific proposal revision guidance from the Hanover Research group. Statistics indicate that incorporating feedback from grant consultants increases the odds of success when applying for external funding. If selected for this opportunity, your materials will be shared with Hanover to initiate this process. Upon award notification, in preparation for proposal submission through the relevant R-EDGE pre-award office, participants should submit the Pre-Award Proposal Initiation Form. Awards made through this program must result in a revised proposal submission to an external sponsor that allows public dissemination of knowledge produced and allows for a minimum of 15% F&A to be included in the sponsor budget with the expectation that Cal Poly's full F&A rate of 38.5% is used whenever allowed by the sponsor. Awardees who fail to meet the expectations of this program jeopardize their eligibility for funding from future internal award programs. 

The R-EDGE Proposal Development Program: Revise & Resubmit is expected to fund up to six proposal revisions across the university. The program will provide each awarded project with a maximum of either: 8 WTUs of assigned time at the replacement rate; 4 WTUs of assigned time at the replacement rate and $9,000 in summer additional compensation; or $9,000 in summer additional compensation. Assigned time should be taken in Fall quarter 2023 and additional compensation should be taken during summer 2023. Proposal revisions are expected to be re-submitted to the external sponsor by June 2024.
