Part 5. Assignment and Review

In this part, you'll learn about requesting assignment to an institute and study section and about initial peer review. Getting your application assigned to the most appropriate review committee and institute is key.

You'll see the actions to take before and after the review meeting, including what materials you may be able to send late.

Next, read about peer review and scoring so you can understand your summary statement and have a productive conversation with your program officer.

Learn what our advisory Council's second-level review does and what it doesn't do. Know the outcomes of second-level review, and see why funding is earlier for some applications.
