Rachel Pentlarge specializes in proposal preparation and support. She previously worked at Children’s National Medical Center as Senior Grants and Contracts Specialist. Rachel has experience submitting proposals in a variety of U.S. Government systems, including eRA Commons and ASSIST, NSF FastLane, and She is also quite familiar with Proposal Central which is a shared platform for a number of private foundations. Rachel can assist with ensuring that each part of the proposal is strong and coheres with all the other components; the budget clearly supports the planned work and the budget justification outlines the need for the funds and makes clear to the sponsor that UMD-MPRC is great place to support. She enjoys working with new as well as experienced researchers.
