I'm reading some grant applications--not for work, but for my professional association. It counts as work in my book. The grants are small--two to three thousand dollars--and have to involve some kind of community activity Basically, academic types work with different kinds of community organizations to accomplish something--the activities proposed are all really different (which makes reading the applications moderately interesting). I just read this sentence:

The concept and products for this outreach study is [sic] innovative and fresh, therefore the imperative for funding this project will be significant and momentous.

What more needs to be said? I should probably just give them the money now.

Grateful for: the opportunity to do service.

  1. I love stories like this...well actually I hate them, but at least I know I'm not the only one who is driven totally crazy by the grammar errors of others.
