As always, we invite you to schedule an application review meeting with us to discuss your materials. You can also take advantage of GradFund’s expertly curated online resources such as the GradFund Database and the Sakai Virtual Office, which features a variety of proposal writing tutorials, each of which is a structured, self-paced program that guides graduate students through the process of getting to know a funder, writing their application materials, and revising and working with feedback to create high quality proposals. Good luck and we look forward to working with you!
