 The tables will be turned, and YOU will become grant readers and scorers. This is a fun and insightful activity helping grant writers become more competitive.  Becoming a reading panel charged with reading, scoring and coming to consensus about grants is one of the highest rated skills-based meetings we conduct. Discussions with your reading panel will reveal how differences in perception and experience can affect how grants are scored. In addition, it will assist grant writers in quickly identifying areas that they can choose to use to be more competitive and understanding what types of issues cause you to lose points in the scoring creating a less than competitive grants.
