Amherst’s pre-submission review process has two parts: a planning stage and a final institutional review.

At the planning stage, Amherst College faculty or staff should fill out GrantsLink in anticipation of officially submitting an external grant or fellowship application.

Request the final institutional review at least five business days prior to the submission deadline. That allows the Controller’s Office to review proposals for completeness and adherence both to funder guidelines and college policies.
