We can help you RISE to the challenge and increase the competitiveness of your applications and proposals:

  • RESEARCH the goals of potential funders and determine how their goals are consonant with your project.
  • IDENTIFY how the funder’s goals are represented in your research plans.
  • SUSTAIN the interest of reviewers with clear writing that avoids unnecessary jargon.
  • EXPLAIN both the strengths and the limitations of your proposal.

Applying for external grants and fellowships involves several steps required by the college and by the University.
