I was able to submit my grant after all!
My letter-writer contacted the relevant people at the Arthritis Foundation just before the deadline and let them know that he was having trouble getting his letter uploaded to the site. I’m very glad to say that they were willing to give me a short extension, and the application was uploaded early this afternoon.
So, maybe this isn’t a deal-buster after all. But I will have to have a long talk with him about how we can avoid this in the future — it is way too stressful!
And I hope you all had a good Labor Day weekend. As I said earlier I was working, and it was pretty busy, so I’m looking forward to this Saturday when I can have a real break.
