This assumes that the OP is submitting a printed grant application,  
which is less common these days.  Depending on how hard-ass the  
evaluators are, this could be grounds to disqualify the grant  
application, since a simple command-d or control-d in Acrobat Reader  
will tell you what fonts are in the document.

Do you have the commercial linotype fonts properly installed on you  
computer in the first place?
