I'm submitting an NIH grant application, should I use Arial or Times New Roman? [MI]

The part of the application that involves Word templates uses 11 pt. Arial and my sponsor does likewise (claims sans fonts are kinder to reviewers). My Graduate advisor loathed sans fonts, and banished them from the lab (thought people who used them had no taste). Would changing to Times New Roman for the proposal section (10 pages crammed very tight) be jarring? Globally switching to Arial will involve some work (opening graphs, tables and illustrations and changing axis labels and such).
