*Resubmission Policy: A resubmission is an unfunded application that is revised and resubmitted to respond to the critiques under the currently reviewed grant cycle. Please note that TRDRP will accept only a single resubmission of the same or very similar project, regardless of change in application title. Resubmissions are only allowed once during the next two subsequent grant cycles.

An application in grant cycle 2018B is considered a resubmission if a similar application was submitted and reviewed in either grant cycle 2017 or in grant cycle 2018A. Applicants are still required to inform the intent to resubmit through an LOI submission, and must note such as a resubmission on proposalCENTRAL (please refer to the LOI/Application instructions for the specific award type). All other applications are considered new applications. The application deadline is different for new applications vs. resubmissions (March 15, 2018). Therefore, it is critical that you note your resubmission status during the LOI stage so your full application deadline can be adjusted accordingly.

Other resubmission examples: For grant cycle 2018A, resubmissions will be accepted in either grant cycle 2018B or grant cycle 2019A. For grant cycle 2018B, resubmissions will be accepted in either grant cycle 2019A or grant cycle 2019B.

Multiple Submissions Policy: TRDRP will accept up to one application per award type per applicant per grant cycle, provided that the proposed research topics and aims are significantly different for each LOI/application. Applicants may not submit more than one application under a specific award type, and may not submit multiple applications across different award types with a similar research subject. TRDRP reserves the right to reject any LOI or application due to multiple submissions by the same applicant. Unless otherwise stated, Supplement awards are not subject to the multiple submission policy.
