Grant Writing

Grant Writing Service

Have your grant edited by Brenda Birmann, part-time grant editor with the ORC. Brenda provides individual feedback, assists with English language, grammar, and writing style, and ensures formatting and content is in line with NIH guidelines. You may sign up for either an ‘Aims only’ or ‘Full Proposal’ slot for the months preceding your submission date.

Initial slots are offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Investigators may be given editing help with up to two full submissions per year. A third request within one year may be considered for an ‘Aims only’ slot if timing allows (or for a second full submission, after one ‘Aims only’ and one full submission), with the understanding that priority will be given to junior investigators/trainees and first-time requests.
