Grant & Job Application Editing

I provide comprehensive editing of grant and job application materials, including research plans, candidate backgrounds, cover letters, CVs/resumes, and supplementary documents. 

Like language editing, application editing includes 3 distinct revision processes—line editing, copyediting, and proofreading—in 1 premium package. You’ll save significant time and money by taking advantage of this comprehensive service; I’ll refine every part of your application from top to bottom.

Line editing, copyediting, and proofreading

I’ll complete a comprehensive, 3-part revision of your application materials to make your experience clear and compelling. No matter your chosen area of study, a well-written application increases your chances of sponsorship or employment.
