Copy Editing

The grant review process is incredibly competitive. PRI can provide support and cover the fees of a copy editor for grant proposals submitted to federal agencies or foundations by PRI faculty associates and affiliates; The principal investigator must be a PRI Faculty Affiliate or Associate. It is up to the principal investigator to make arrangements with a copy editor. Keep in mind that copy editors will need time to work so arrangements should be made well ahead of any submission deadlines. Contact Diane Diviney to make arrangements for reimbursement or payment of invoiced fees.
