People Are Saying

High-value Proposals / Strategic Teams

I want to make sure that you know how grateful we are for your help. As I looked over the reviews you did for the Cores and Resources, I realized what a skill you have. You were able to keep what was good in the authors' attempts and push them in the direction they need to take. Are you sure you aren't a behavioral psychologist? I found your approach very motivating and the others did, too. On behalf of all those who have worked so hard on this project, thank you for your hard work."

It was funded by NIDRR (Dept of Ed) through their Field Initiated Competition. Your feedback really helped me to learn how to 'package' a grant. I re-read the proposal yesterday (to remind myself what we promised to do!) and thought, 'Wow, this is really well written - no wonder they funded it!'"

Associate Professor, Regional State University

This is my first NSF proposal. So I really appreciate having you guide me through this process which would otherwise be extremely intimidating. I truly learned quite a lot about grant writing. Whenever I eventually succeed in securing a grant, I definitely have you to thank for it."
