I won!!! (update from a year ago) Remember, a year ago I was unfairly rejected for a grant application? It appeared my career would be over, indeed I even started getting news that I was kicked out of programs that I was already accepted to. I appealed the decision, was shocked by some appalling statements in my dossier, a respected committee sided with me in a hearing and apologies were made at that stage. Two independent experts evaluated the case and couldn't find any reason why the application would be eligible for rejection. After a struggle of 9 months the decision now has been made that the grant will be awarded My supervisor found out I was among the 2–3 best interviews and so I think I can be happy/proud that there has been justice.
