grant reviews

I don't have the skills to write grant proposals. Can I get paid to provide objective feedback?

I have discovered that I do not have the skills to write proposals (budgets, numbers). But I can fulfill the "grandma" position. I am academically oriented, not business oriented. Thus I would read the proposal and comment. How do I go about getting my name out to groups that could use my input? What do I charge for such a service?

For the most part, reading and commenting on proposals is a courtesy exchange among professional peers and friends. Consultants who are paid for such services should have extensive, successful experience in developing and reviewing proposals. And the ability to understand budgets and provide useful feedback is a critical part of the process. Before providing any paid, consulting services in the field of grant proposal development and writing, youll need to gain deep experience.
