Successfully submitting grant proposals, journal articles, manuscripts, or juried program materials is a detailed process.  GVSU’s new Quality Circles program provides opportunities for you to improve your proposal by receiving feedback from past recipients and selection-committee members, in a manner designed to mirror the actual review your submission will undergo.  

The reviewers in Circles for Success look at your entire submission (title, abstract, main body, and any appendices) and review the different components, helping to ensure that your material is conveyed in the best possible manner. Care is given to explore the initial impression of your application and in providing feedback to assist with making a strong first impression.

 Circles for Success offers:

  • Peer review and feedback on a variety of writing projects
  • Insight from recipients and former selection-committee members
  • Fullbright, NSF, foundational, governmental and internal grant submission feedback and assistance
  • Improvement of success rates  
  • Improvement of scholarship
  • Aid in increasing your portfolio and research
