Revision Roundup: Advice from our Archives

With the Fall fellowship and grant application season in full swing, today we bring you a roundup of some of our most useful advice on how to solicit and respond to feedback as you complete those final revisions on your application.

  • Are you reapplying for an award this season? If so, be sure to consult reviewer feedback from the last cycle. Read this post to learn more about how to respond to reviewer feedback.
  • Tired of rereading your proposal for the hundredth time? Learn how to gain a fresh perspective on an old document here.
  • Have you already swapped proposals with a friend? Read more about best practices in providing feedback.
  • Are you feeling as if you might have too much feedback? Find out how to manage multiple sources of feedback here.

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!
