  • learned about the technical requirements of the project description so that your proposal is sure to include all required elements, 
  • learned about the primary review criteria (Intellectual Merit and Broader Impacts), 
  • learned about the solicitation-specific criteria, 
  • learned about the characteristics of a compelling project description
