Try using instead:


This will use a public-domain Palatino clone for text, with  
characters taken from Symbol for maths. See the doc of the psnfss  
package psnfss2e.pdf, usually at /Library/TeX/Documentation/texmf- 

Specialists would see a difference with Linotype Palatino, but  
probably not the experts evaluating the grant application. Generally  
the specification of a given font is just here to ensure that all  
applicants are submitting proposals subject to the same length  
criteria (instead of having applicants submitting longer proposals  
using tighter fonts with smaller character sizes, smaller margins and  
smaller line spacing).

Hope this helps,
