Proposal Editing Services

Proposal development supports proposals with a team of staff and graduate student technical editors for individual or interdisciplinary proposals. This service is geared towards non-native English speakers.  

Eligibility for Support 

Faculty  members, Research Scientists, and Postdocs  who are seeking editing and proofreading on sponsored research proposals (grants) are eligible. This service is offered on a first-come, first-served basis and is subject to the editing team’s availability.  

For assistance developing proposals for philanthropic organizations, please contact the  Corporate and Foundation Relations  team in the Division of Advancement.      

What’s Included in the Editing  

Services include editing, proofreading,  and image/visual improvements. Proposal reviews include comments and suggestions that: 

  • highlight where the proposal can better align with funder guidelines and priorities (if needed); 

  • help to enhance the proposal’s structure; 

  • make specific grammatical suggestions and edits; 

  • increase the resolution and clarity of images and tables 

To request editing support, select “yes” on your GCS Request Form or email to discuss if the project is eligible for editing services.
