Grant Language Editing Program (GLEP)

The Grant Language Editing Program (GLEP) aims to provide support for research grant applicants who are interested in editorial assistance with English. The consultants will be invited from among the students who received ABS Student Research Grants (SRG) in the past two years, who are confident in English grammar and have strong editing abilities. The consultants will restrict their comments to grammar and word choice only, feedback on scientific content and merit of the proposal will not be provided through the GLEP.

The final version of the proposals must be submitted to the GLEP though the grant submission system one month in advance of the SRG deadline. Participants will receive their proposal with consultants’ comments two weeks before the SRG deadline and will be responsible for proceeding with the submission through the grant system.

Important notes:

  • Consultants will not comment on the scientific content of the proposal or overall grantsmanship.
  • Proposals submitted to the GLEP must be a final (or nearly final) version.
  • The GLEP and SRG have the same submission processes.

Applications will be accepted through the online Grant Submission System. All Grants should be submitted online following the Guidelines. View General Grant Submission Guidelines

GLEP Submission deadline is November 15, 2021.
