Technical editing assistance is available to all faculty in the College of Engineering for proposals, pre-proposals, letters of intent, and other written submissions related to funding. This service includes line-by-line editing and proofreading technical narrative, reviewing against solicitation guidelines, editing support letters, facilities descriptions, etc., and identifying resources for proposal narrative sections.
For help with the structure and content of your proposal—ensuring that your argument is logical and that your proposal answers the solicitation and is presented as strongly as possible—contact the editor at least two months before your intended submission date. A draft is not necessary at this point, but contact must be made to ensure space on the editor's schedule.
For help polishing your proposal — proofreading for copy errors and word choice, and shortening if needed — contact the editor at least one month before your intended submission date. Again, you do not need a draft this far in advance, but contact must be made to ensure space on the editor's schedule.
To access this services, please contact Joanna Trieger at (775) 682-7737.
