COMSEP Grant Proposal Call
Dear COMSEP Colleagues,
I am delighted to inform you that the application system for COMSEP Grant Proposals is open for submission. You can access the system via this link https://www.comsep.org/grants/login.cfm
Proposals are due by Friday, December 4th 2020, by 5:00 pm Pacific time.
In lieu of the Letter of Intent (LOI) process that we have offered in the past as a means for COMSEP members to get feedback on scholarly ideas, this year we have modified our process in consideration of the likely impact of the current pandemic on our lives. While the deadline for the formal submission of the application is December 4, 2020, we encourage potential applicants to submit a ‘pre-proposal’ (optional) using the same format and structure as the full application, if you would like feedback on any aspect of your submission. The ‘pre-proposal’ should be submitted as a single PDF and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org as opposed to being submitted via the on line portal. You do not need to include letters of support or evidence of IRB submission with the pre-proposal.
The deadline for the ‘pre-proposal’ is September 4th 2020 at 5 pm pacific time. This will give you adequate time to make modifications to the grant proposal, should you choose to do so, before the December 4, 2020 deadline.
Please carefully read the information on the right side of the COMSEP Grant Application System page: 2020 Call for Proposals to Advance Scholarship in COMSEP. Then on the left side of the COMSEP Grant Application System page you will see the items that you are required to fill in or enter. Note that all information after your name and institution must be uploaded in PDF format only. When you have completed and uploaded each item, you will have completed the submission process; once submitted the system will not permit modifications to the Proposal.
This is an exciting opportunity for COMSEP members to advance their educational scholarship with innovative research focused on enhancing the quality and advancing undergraduate pediatric medical education. Should you have any questions about your grant preparation, please do not hesitate to contact me at email@example.com.
