Grant Proposal Resubmission Workshop and Working Group

Dear faculty,

The Division of Research and Innovation team acknowledges that much of the funding needed for your research, scholarship, and creative activity (RSCA) to reach its full potential must come from extramural sources. The Research Development (RD) team is here to help you plan and create grant proposals that have the highest chance of funding in today’s very competitive funding environment. In fact, most proposals have to be submitted two to three times before they are funded. If you have a RSCA proposal that was not funded on your first try, do not be discouraged—resubmit with help from the RD team! I encourage you to attend the upcoming workshop and the working group.

Workshop on Grant Proposal Resubmissions
Strategies for a successful proposal resubmission

Grant Proposal Resubmission Working Group

This is a pilot program for faculty to get interactive support and proposal feedback from RD, your faculty peers, and an external reviewer who is an expert in the subject area of the proposal. It will consist of four meetings during a 10 week-period in which you will be revising your proposal while getting feedback as well as giving feedback to two of your peers in the cohort.
  • Week 1. Meet with your assigned RD specialist to go over your proposal and reviews and devise a revision strategy.
  • Week 2-3. Meet with the Resubmission Working Group cohort and RD to briefly present your original proposal, the proposed changes and to choose two faculty to do reciprocal peer-review with.
  • Week 3-6. Revise your proposal and iterate at least one draft with your RD specialist.
  • Week 6. Send your proposal to the two faculty reviewers and RD, and review the two faculty proposals agreed to in week 2.
  • Week 7. Meet with the two faculty who reviewed your proposal and RD to discuss all three proposals.
  • Week 7-10. Revise your proposal based on faculty/RD feedback and send it to a paid external reviewer.
  • Follow-up. Revise your proposal based on the external review and get one more review from your assigned RD Specialist. Re-submit proposal through SJSU Research Foundation.
Please indicate your interest and availability by clicking the register button below.

I encourage you to re-submit unfunded grant proposals and to take advantage of one or both of these support opportunities provided by the RD team to succeed with your resubmissions.

All the best with your resubmissions.
