Making It Easy on the Reviewer

At Effect Measure, Revere takes a break from an all-consuming grant application to discuss how to make reading the proposal easy on the reviewer — which hopefully makes your application more successful. "My goal is always to write the grant in such a way that it writes its own review. You take all the review criteria and you address each one and then make them easy to find. Clarity and making things easy for the reviewer have been my keys to grant success," Revere writes, adding that, of course, you need to have a good idea as well. Revere also suggests that new investigators get on a grant review committee early on. "Once you get accustomed to looking at things like a reviewer, you are 80% of the way to successful grant writing," Revere says.
