From coast to coast, JCCI clients tell us how invaluable our grant consulting services have been to their achievements.

“Working with JCCI was key to securing a Title III grant. Their expertise, meticulous feedback, and knowledge of the strengthening institutions program and guidelines helped to move a good proposal to a fundable proposal. They are insightful, skilled, and experienced professionals.”

“JCCI’s expertise was extraordinarily valuable in helping Seton Hill prepare a competitive Title III project to expand access and achievement for students in high-demand careers in STEM fields. The consultant provided strategic insight to each step within the proposal process. JCCI’s guidance was instrumental in Seton Hill University’s achievement of a $2.1 million grant award.”

Dr. Mary C. Finger, President
Seton Hill University
Greensburg, PA

“We embarked upon a very large Title III grant proposal and soon realized we couldn’t accomplish it by ourselves. We needed expert help with a proven track record, so we hired JCCI. The experience was remarkable. JCCI’s team led us through a rigorous 6-month process which resulted in a very detailed 80-page grant proposal. We were competing with hundreds of other colleges and universities, but we landed the grant award for $2.1 million dollars. This is a game changer for our college. We couldn’t have done it without JCCI.”

Dr. Vinita Sauder, President
Union College
Lincoln, NE

“JCCI provided excellent support to keep our team on track and moving forward. The consistent communication we received regarding deadlines for section writing and submission was immensely helpful, as were their recommendations regarding budget and narrative preparation to help us more effectively tell our college’s amazing story.”

“Our reviewer had experience reviewing grants submitted to HRSA, which was invaluable. Her thoughtful questions and comments helped us revise and polish several parts of our grant application so that we highlighted exactly what HRSA was looking for. Her attention to details and consistency kept us accountable and resulted in ‘no weaknesses’ notations in our actual review by HRSA.”
