Grant Proposal Evaluation and Selection

The grant evaluation process is conducted using established review criteria and a standardized scoring system. Each application will be rated against these criteria, and assigned a score for each criterion, based upon the extent to which they meet the standard. Applications are evaluated based on the CCI Research Foundation Grant Proposal Evaluation Rubric.

Applications are pre-screened on a pass/fail basis during the administrative review, which includes determination of compliance with application and eligibility requirements. Complete applications are then reviewed by the evaluation committee. Applicants will be notified of determinations for the 2020 funding cycle by August 31, 2020.
