OARS Research Newsletter
Mentors sought for new OARS program
In an effort to help improve the quality of proposals being submitted to external agencies, OARS is launching an internal peer review/mentoring program. We seek to establish a pool of experienced Miami researchers who have previously received Federal funding and have served on peer review panels for Federal agencies, and are willing to conduct internal reviews of extramural funding proposals prior to submission. Researchers in the pool will also mentor the proposal writers as they work to strengthen the documents before submitting to funding agencies.
Prospective mentors should read the full announcement for details and application instructions. Once a pool of mentors is establshed, OARS will issue a call for prospective mentees.
