Student RCSA Grant Evaluation Criteria

Proposals will be reviewed by the Undergraduate Research and Creative Activities Team (URCAT) and the Research Advisory Council (RAC) at UCO. If there is a conflict of interest for a specific proposal, the member of URCAT or the RAC must recuse himself/herself from the review process of that proposal.

 Proposals will be evaluated based on criteria established by members of the URCAT and RAC. These include:

  1. Clear description
  2. Originality and creativity
  3. Feasibility
  4. Methodology
  5. Significance and value
  6. A detailed budget and a clear justification of expenditures

For an example of the criteria that will be used by reviewers to evaluate your proposal, follow this link: Evaluation Criteria.

We reserve the right to send proposals our for external review.
