Grant review and writing services
The Office of Research and Scholarship (ORS) offers a peer-to-peer review service for applications for external funding agencies. To provide sufficient time to identify a reviewer and complete the review, investigators should notify Carla Reichard (firstname.lastname@example.org) soon after identifying a funding opportunity. Draft proposals should be provided at least three weeks before the submission deadline. Faculty are encouraged to provide names of potential reviewers on campus. Selected proposals with large budgets or multiple PIs may be sent to a professional grant writer for a review. The key to obtaining a meaningful review is for PIs to plan ahead and submit the proposal to ORS well in advance of the deadline.
In addition, a full-time grant writer will be housed in ORS to help faculty present their proposal narrative in the best possible light. A search is currently in progress; we expect to make an announcement in April, 2018.
