The graduate dean of a college or university or his or her representative will be responsible for accepting, screening, and forwarding through the Department of Education's Application Control Center to the Advanced Training and Research Team those individual applications which meet the institution's technical and academic criteria and the program's eligibility requirements. Candidates for dissertation research fellowships apply directly to the institutions at which they are enrolled in a Ph.D. program, not to the Department of Education. This program is excluded from coverage under E.O. 12372. This program is excluded from coverage under OMB Circular No. A-102.
This section indicates whether any prior coordination or approval is required with governmental or nongovernmental units
prior to the submission of a formal application to the federal funding agency.
In some cases, there are no provisions for appeal. Where applicable, this section discusses appeal procedures or allowable rework time for resubmission
of applications to be processed by the funding agency. Appeal procedures vary with individual programs and are either listed in this section or
applicants are referred to appeal procedures documented in the relevant Code of Federal Regulations (CFR).
In some instances, renewal procedures may be the same as for the application procedure, e.g., for projects of a non-continuing nature renewals will be treated as new, competing applications; for projects of an ongoing nature, renewals may be given annually.
