Quality Circles Mentoring Program


Quality Circles for Proposal Submission Enhancement

Successfully submitting grants, journal articles, manuscripts, or juried program materials is a detailed process. GVSU’s new Quality Circles program provides opportunities for you to improve your proposals by receiving feedback in a manner designed to mirror the actual review your submission will undergo.

The reviewers for Circles for Success look at your entire submission (title, abstract, main body, and any appendices) and review the different components, helping to ensure that your material is conveyed in the best possible manner. Care is given to explore the initial impression of your application and in providing feedback to assist with making a strong first impression.




If you would like a mentor to review your initiative, simply email [email protected] with your request.
