Apex Grant Review Packages

Increase your chances of success in a fiercely competitive funding environment.

 


Apex Grant Review is a grant strategy and editing package for researchers who want to make sure their proposal makes it to the top tier.


If you already have a strong track record, a solid study design, a team of experts, and a well-resourced research environment...what's left? What's going to make you stand out?

 

You need to write a proposal that makes reviewers sit up in their chairs. 

(That's where I come in.)

 

By the time I'm finished with you, you'll have a clear, exciting, and persuasive grant proposal that gets better scores.

The Process

  1. Book a call with me to talk about your proposal
  2. Choose a package (options listed below) and get me your draft by the deadline
  3. I'll return your draft with comments, edits, and recommendations (how long will it take? You decide based on the package you choose!)
  4. You make revisions based on my recommendations and send it back to me for another round of review
  5. I return your second draft with comments, edits, and recommendations
  6. You make the final revisions to your proposal and submit to the funding institution by the deadline

In case you missed it:

This is for go-getters only.

 

I work with people who are prepared to work hard. People who are accustomed to juggling eleventy billion things at once, and who still manage to get it all done. 

Writing large operating grants is no joke. And if you want to get it right, if you want it to be *really* good, you need to make sure that you have your sh*t together. 

Are we cool? Great.

Now let's get to work.


Your options to write the best grant of your career
