Scientific Peer Review Exemption Policy
Effective May 25, 2018, revised July 11, 2018
We continually adjust the Scientific Peer Review Process to improve the quality of our extramural funding applications and the likelihood of success. We are adjusting the process to accommodate the diversity of our investigators through an exemption and waiver policy to take immediate effect.
The Scientific Peer Review Policy will be optional for those applying for federal awards who fit the following criteria.
In addition, faculty may formally request a waiver from Scientific Peer Review in the following situations:
2. A waiver may be granted if the time between release of the grant announcement & grant deadline is less than 10 weeks.
3. Special circumstances for exemptions will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
Please see the FAQ document (website) for additional information and directions on how to request a waiver. Further inquiries may be directed to: email@example.com
