ABSTRACT

This study analyzes and compares grant proposal review system in Korea and U.S. in order to suggest policy implications for the improvement of grant proposal review system in Korea Research Foundation(KRF). The components of proposal review system- organizational structure, review process and evaluation criteria - are surveyed in depth for each country with the cases of Korea Research Foundation(Korea) and National Science Foundation(U.S.). The strengths and weakness of each case are compared in terms of expertise, fairness and efficiency. The research result showed that overall NSF is further advanced in grant proposal review system. It was found that the superiority of NSF system stemmed from the practice of trustiness in academic experts. In conclusion KRF needs to design grant proposal review system in a way that values and trusts academic experts including professors and program managers.
