In response to a request for seed grant applications issued August
15th, 2002, nineteen Letters of Intent were received by the September
15th, 2002 deadline. These Letters were reviewed by the Cousins Center
Research & Education Committee whose members include Drs. Julienne
E. Bower, Steven W. Cole, Chris J. Evans, John L. Fahey, Fawzy I. Fawzy,
Michael R. Irwin, Bruce D. Naliboff, and Thomas F. Newton.
|The Research & Education Committee recommended that full applications
be invited from ten Letter submitters and nine full proposals were received
by the November 15th, 2002 deadline. Each application was reviewed by
a primary, secondary and tertiary reviewer and these reviews were presented
and discussed at a meeting of the full committee. In any case where a
committee member had a conflict of interest on a particular application,
that committee member absented him or herself from the meeting room during
discussion and abstained from voting.
