2nd Time Grant Charm

When a college faculty member was turned down for a National Institutes of Health (NIH) Academic Research Enhancement Award (AREA), WSW helped transform the initial response into a platform for funding success. After careful examination of reviewer comments, WSW proposed key improvements to the grant application, carefully guiding the rewrite and resubmission process. With WSW team members aboard for the second, revamped request, the project grant was fully funded at more than $322,000—a remarkable turnaround.
