    Proposal Peer Review

    RFCUNY’s Office of Award Pre-Proposal Support (APPS) provides a Proposal Peer Review service that enables CUNY faculty to receive constructive feedback on the competitiveness of their external grant proposals from colleagues in their own academic field. These proposal peer reviewers are recruited from inside the CUNY community, across the nation, and worldwide.

    Proposal Peer Review welcomes proposals from all different academic disciplines, and for all different funder types.

    Please click here to submit your grant proposal for peer feedback, or to sign up as a reviewer.
