Testimonials
I participated in this workshop series for the June submission cycle and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to submit in October! Even established PIs can benefit from the scheduling techniques and timeline management we learned.

~ Grant Pacing Workshop Participant

The project management strategy of backing out the timeline and including specific dates for completion of tasks works well.

~ Grant Pacing Workshop Participant

Breaking everything down into smaller pieces is really useful.
