Who should write the letters of support and to whom should they be addressed?

Key personnel and organizations supporting the project should submit letters of support.

All Letters of Support must be addressed to the PI and demonstrate the commitment of key personnel and supporting organizations (e.g., dual-PI, co-PI, co-investigators, consultants, patient and stakeholder partners, and stakeholder organizations) to the proposed project.

Letters of Support are not required for personnel who are not contributing in a substantive, measurable way to the project’s scientific development or execution. However, any group or individual willing to speak for or recommend the research project is also encouraged to complete a letter. 

All Letters of Support should be consolidated into a single PDF, and uploaded into the PCORI Online System, with the Letters of Support Table as the first page of the file. 

For more information, please be sure to read the Submission Instructions (formerly known as application guidelines) for your specific PFA.
