WRITING THE PERFECT GRANT: AFTER YOUR SUBMISSION

It’s not over yet…

Funder Follow-up: questions & clarification: Often (and if you are fortunate) staff of funding agencies will review your application package before its submitted to the jury; and then may call you asking for clarification on some written or budget item. This is a GREAT opportunity to catch a problem that might have caused an unintended issue at the jury table. Sometimes these calls/emails come immediately before (or even during) the jury process – so do NOT delay in getting back to the funder, and do it in writing if you can, so that document can be appended to your application package for the jury.
