Abstract and RFA/RFP

UW Abstract

The eGC1 abstract should express the purpose and essence of the proposed activity in language understandable to non-specialists. Those charged with explaining the University’s research programs to the public and the state government, including the Board of Regents and the Office of News and Information, rely heavily upon the abstract. For this reason, the abstract entered on the eGC1 should be less technical than the abstract on the application submitted to the sponsor. The importance of preparing it carefully cannot be overemphasized.

The abstract field does not have a word limit.
