  • A 75-minute one-to-one virtual session 

  • Guidance on your proposal draft, including feedback to shape and hone your hook, your project description, and your argument sections.

  • Clarity on what the different sections of your proposal are intended to showcase, as well as feedback on how to use them effectively.

  • Answers to your lingering submission questions.

  • Ink Blotter's signature Progress Tracker.

  • A recap video highlighting your main takeaways.
