Writing a Piece of a Grant

During my time at Tufts I've attended countless meetings specifically convened to discuss grant ideas, and even more where the focus has been something else but the conversation turned to finding grant funding for a particular idea. Over the past two years I've been more involved in grant planning and serving as a technical advisor to the grant writers.

Most recently I've been involved in a series of meetings focused on putting together a proposal for a specific grant. Today I led a discussion with a handful of folks to review the broad technical steps involved in accomplishing the ideas on the table for the grant application. After the discussion, and for the first time in all those meetings about grants, I was asked to write a part of the grant.

I don't know if I should be excited or scared, but for some reason it felt like I had passed a milestone that was worthy of note.
