This question has been flagged

In the forum, discuss grants you have lost in the past and what you think contributed to the loss of the grant. Use the information provided in the lecture of this unit to help guide your answer. 

Reviewing the factors, what do you think may have contributed to it? Do not dismiss the fact that you may have submitted the perfect application and still lost the grant. Competition is fierce (there is one foundation in Southern California that shows all of the submissions and all of the approvals and declines. They had 18,000 applicants and 700 they could fund - just to give you perspective). However, even if you think your application was perfect, what do you think you could have improved on? Did you have any of the red flags listed in the lecture?  Discuss your reflections on that application in the forum.
