Copy Editing

The grant review process is incredibly competitive. To help you put your best foot forward, PRI will provide funds to cover the fees of a copy editor for grant proposals submitted to federal agencies or foundations by PRI faculty associates and affiliates. 

PRI will provide funds to PRI Associates only for copy-editing on manuscripts.
