FACULTY EDITING OPTIONS

GRANT PROPOSAL EDITING GROUPS

3 - 10 WEEKS, depending on group

Group 1: NSF-CAREER

Group 2: NIH

Group 3: Other Proposals

These peer groups are designed for grant writers who will submit to NIH, NSF-CAREER, or other funding organization by late spring or early summer.

Early sessions focus on generating the proposal; later sessions cover editing and proofreading methods and will include feedback from participants.

Attendees must commit to attending a minimum of 3 sessions and to reading and to providing commentary and feedback on at least 2 other participants’ writing.

Some participants may need only a couple sessions of feedback while other participants may wish to attend more sessions. The flexible weeks (3+ weeks) are designed to allow for faculty to jump in or out of the group as needed, up to 6 sessions.

Testimonials

"Overall, the peer editing helped considerably in the development of logic, argument, and word choice in my proposal. This was very beneficial as I believe the feedback improved the clarity of my proposal to the general audience, which is very important. One of the reasons I think this peer editing group was and is so beneficial is that the process provides early feedback when we might not otherwise solicit feedback. Often we (professors) want to have a complete draft of a proposal before we let anyone look at it, but this process made me realize that early feedback is very beneficial as it can prevent a writer from spending countless hours on something that will end up being a poor use of their time."
