Grants, Tenders, Prizes

Grant applications, tenders and prestigious prizes are highly competitive, and becoming ever more so. We can increase your chances of success by strategically reviewing your draft submission and identifying its strengths and weaknesses, including how effectively it targets audience and assessment criteria.

We can then provide advice on how to improve the positioning, argument and language, or we can refine the submission ourselves through careful, intelligent editing with scrupulous attention to detail. For time-poor applicants we can, with your guidance, write the submission from scratch.

We have supported literally hundreds of submissions across a vast range of schemes and opportunities, national and international. Popular Australian schemes we have worked on include:
