The Waiting is the Hardest Part. . .

We wrote three grant proposals for a competition that was supposed to announce the preliminary list of those selected for funding on Friday (4 days ago!). Now it's Tuesday and we're still waiting.

Sometimes it really feels like this is the hardest part of the grant process.

Everyone is anxious for results. People are waiting to make definite plans for next year and the grant competition results play an important role in those decisions.

Unfortunately, there is no way to speed up the process. All we can do is wait.
