Grant Proposal Editing
ORD provides editorial-level grant editing services including:
Alignment with sponsor’s mission
Clarity of ideas
Persuasiveness of argument
Grammar/spelling - copy-editing
English for speakers of other languages
Free to FSU faculty!
When providing editing services, we need a workweek to fit the editing into our schedule.
Contact Mike Mitchell to request this service.
Note: At this time, ORD does not edit manuscripts or books. FSU English Department graduate students with editing experience are sometimes available for freelance work (contact email@example.com for more details). Additionally, a support community and service that FSU subscribes to, the National Center of Faculty Development and Diversity (NCFDD), provides a list of professional editors (Note: Inclusion on this list does not equal endorsement. For informational purposes only). You must sign up for a (free) FSU account in order to access this list: https://www.facultydiversity.org/recommended-editors. Additionally, check out the NCFDD webinar on How to Work with Academic Editors.
If you are a faculty member looking for assistance with editing an application other than a grant proposal, such as a fellowship or recognition/award nomination, please contact Peggy Wright-Cleveland. Peggy provides editorial support, including alignment with requirements; clarity of proposal ideas, particularly for out-of-field readers; persuasiveness of argument establishing fit for award/fellowship; copy-editing; and English for non-native speakers.
