Submission Guidelines:


All UofSC School of Medicine faculty/faculty affiliates and Columbia VA investigators are eligible to submit their research proposal for pre-submission review.

Submission Requirements

Investigators should submit, at a minimum, a research plan/strategy summary to include the research design and statistical approach, and funding announcement information (i.e. NIH RFA #). The submission of additional documents, such as specific aims page, references cited, biographical sketch, and ancillary documents is recommended for enhanced feedback of the overall proposal. For peer review of resubmissions, investigators must include any agency reviews (i.e. proposal scores sheet, summary statements, and “pink sheets”).

Submission & Review Dates

The review submission dates and summary return dates are based on general NIH submission deadlines (see below). This will allow investigators time for potential revisions prior to their grant submission. If you would like to submit a proposal for review outside of this timeline, please email the RCTH at for more information.
