Grant & Job Application Editing

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

Like language editing, application editing includes a 3-part revision process; I’ll refine every aspect of your application from top to bottom.

Line editing and copyediting

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