Developing a Full Proposal

The deadline for submission of Pre-proposals to the 2019 RFP is April 15, 2019.

All submitted pre-proposals are evaluated by the SAB. Each one-page summary of the proposed idea is considered in the context of current program priorities, ongoing research supported by CRDF and other sources, scientific merit, and the potential benefit of the proposed project to the citrus industry. Pre-proposals are ranked and recommendations forwarded to the RMC.

The Citrus Research and Development Foundation Research Management Committee integrates Scientific Advisory Board recommendations with their independent appraisal of pre-proposals and makes their recommendation to the Board of Directors in determining pre-proposals for which full proposals are invited. The resulting list of those pre-proposals which are invited for full proposals are expected to be posted on the website on or about May 22, 2019. Principal Investigators of those selected projects are requested to submit a full proposal by the June 24, 2019 (5:00 pm Eastern time) deadline following instructions posted on the website, which details are also included at the following link. Note that all forms have been updated in 2019; only current forms (CB-19 and SC-19) will be accepted for consideration.
