Best professional development in higher education!
Dear Program Director,
I am an assistant professor of biology at Northeastern Oklahoma State University with 10 years of experience in teaching undergraduate students. My research interests are with amino acids produced by toads as possible use in treating obesity.
Oklahoma has the highest child obesity rate in the nation. NSU has a student population of 28% native Americans. I have directed 45 undergraduate researchers over the past 3 years. My experiences may be of help in reviewing grant proposals for the Summer Institute Program to Increase Diversity in Health-Related Research.
To help the writer make the proposal better.
At NSF, only 25% of first time grant proposals are funded.
50% of 2nd re-submissions are funded.
85% of 3rd re-submissions are funded.

Useful: The proposed partnership descriptions include sufficient detail to determine the partnership benefit to the project. (p.41)
Less useful: The partnerships look great.
