Pre-proposals are required for this competition. Three page pre-proposals will be selected by a panel consisting of the ex-officio members of the Water Resources Research Institute’s state advisory committee:
The invitation rate for pre-proposals has ranged from 20% to 40% in recent years. Based on preliminary budgets submitted in pre-proposals, full proposals are typically invited for 120% to 150% of the expected level of available funding; therefore the success rate for invited full proposals is typically 60% to 80%.
Pre-proposal submissions need institutional approval prior to submission only to the extent necessary to convince the pre-proposal panel that the budgets are realistic and that adequate matching funds will be available.
Three page pre-proposal deadline: Wednesday, June 12, 2013
Pre-proposals must be sent as MS Word compatible attachments to UMGMC@maine.edu.
The document can be no more than 3 pages in length. It should be set in 12 point type with one inch margins on all sides. The document must be entirely self-contained and self-explanatory; no cover letter is allowed. The following document structure is highly recommended as it follows the format for a full proposal:
|Cost Category||Program Funds||Non-Federal Match|
|Students (no fringe benefits)|
|Fringe benefits @ (rate)|
|Other (eg. tuition)|
|Total Direct Costs|
|IDC on Program $|
|IDC on Match|
