Second-Chance Mentoring (Part 1)
The National Science Foundation’s Advanced Technological Education (ATE) Program encourages prospective grantees to rework and resubmit proposals that were declined when initially submitted. Mentor-Connect supports this proposal re-submission process by offering Second-Chance Mentoring.


Eligible colleges include:
(1) those whose first proposal to the Small Grants for Institutions New to ATE was declined, and
(2) those who successfully completed a Small Grants for Institutions New to ATE project and subsequently submitted a proposal for a full ATE Project that was declined.

This service is available at no cost to the colleges accepted for Second-Chance Mentoring.

This on-line application may be submitted at any time within two years after the date on which a proposal was declined and by April 1 of the year in which the revised proposal will be submitted. (This due date will be extended to May 1 if the proposal was declined during the month of April.)

Mentor-Connect will provide mentoring by email and telephone conferences for proposals that meet the following criteria:

• The purpose of the original proposal is still valid and it remains essentially the same in the revised proposal

• The college administration is willing to resubmit the proposal.

• The PI, a Co-PI or another member of the senior personnel in the declined proposal will serve as the PI of the revised proposal.

• The proposal received reviewer ratings that are mainly “Good” or higher.

The application will include a copy of the declined proposal, as originally submitted, and the reviewer comments generated during the proposal review process.

Mentoring for reworking/resubmitting a proposal will consist of approximately fifteen hours of support from a mentor who will:
• Study the declined proposal and the reviewer comments.

• Discuss proposed revisions with the PI, Co-PIs, and grant writer.

• Be available for questions by phone and email.

• Provide advice as the proposal is revised.

• Review the submission-ready proposal, no later than two weeks before the deadline.


Those receiving mentoring services will be expected to fully participate in the evaluation of this activity by providing Mentor-Connect with copies of the new proposal and the panel reviews and by participating in surveys and/or individual interviews.

* After completing (Part 1) of your application, please email all the required material (Part 2) to mentor-connect@fdtc.edu.
