Hanover for Miller School Faculty

All Miller School of Medicine faculty are eligible with priority will be given to early-career faculty who are submitting a first-time grant or resubmission application. All funding sources are considered.

Hanover can provide up to 2 waves of review from one of their Grants Consultants for each proposal. The 2 waves can include any combination of the following services described below:

  • margin comments on the narrative draft with recommendations surrounding alignment of the proposal to the grant opportunity’s guidelines and funder’s expectations
  • a brief memo outlining high-level recommendations
  • a debrief teleconference call with a Grants Consultant

Submissions will be selected by the EDR Internal Advisory Committee to use the Hanover Proposal Review service for their application. Hanover will provide the PI with the results of the Proposal Review in approximately 2-3 weeks after submission depending on complexity.

Click here to apply through the University of Miami InfoReady System. Have ready to submit the following:

  • Letter from your Department Chair or Institute/Center Director in support of the scientific merit of the application
