Reviewing grant proposals properly is as critical a function as writing them.
What good is it to spend six months on a grant proposal only to have it trashed in the hands of an irresponsible reviewer?
Never forget that when you review a proposal you sometimes hold the career of another person in your hands.
So focus, pay attention, and try to be as constructive and informative as you can — and pray that someone else will show the same courtesy and responsibility towards your proposal.
Here is a great post on this rarely addressed topic, posted by an academician who has written nearly 30 proposal within three years — that’s a lot. During that period she’s got to read and write a lot of reviews. I’m glad that she decided to share her experiences with us and list the do’s and don’ts of proposal reviewing. It’s good stuff.
