Tracking and Resubmission

Tracking and Resubmission

With increased online proposal submission, it is critical to make a plan with ORSP, which has proposal submission deadlines designed to leave ample time to manage system errors.

For detailed instructions on submission and tracking using federal grant systems, such as Grants.gov; eRA Commons (NIH); HRSA’s Electronic Handbooks (EHB); and NSF Fastlane, click here

Do not get discouraged if your proposal is not funded:
  • Recognize less than 10 percent of first-time applications are awarded.
  • Consider reviewers’ comments an opportunity to strengthen your proposal.
  • Leverage relationships with Program or Scientific Review Officers from your initial submission.
  • Resubmit in a later proposal round, if available.
  • Identify additional funding sources for a subsequent submission.
