Meeting Program Directors at NSF (Richard Nader)

Grant readers - are a willing pair of eyes to read your grant.  Even if it is only partly done (ie. have someone start reading the introduction, as you finish writing the rest of it), get someone else to read your grant before submitting it.  Different readers will catch different issues with your grant, which will only strengthen your application.  Recently our office had a proposal which three different people read and we all caught different problems with it.  Anything that is caught by people reading your grant here at TAMIU is one less thing for a reviewer to use to sort your grant into the "do not fund" pile.  If you want another pair of eyes to read your grant, simply contact our office for assistance finding a grant reader(s).
