HORT603 - Grants and Grantsmanship

Other Tips


  • In proposal writing there is no substitute for having a clearly defined research problem.

  • Carefully manage your time -- don't leave everything until the last minute.

  • There is no substitute for good science and clear, concise writing.

  • Seek advice from colleagues who are successful in grant-writing.

  • Practice (grant writing is a learned skill).

  • Volunteer to be a reviewer for agencies that fund proposals.

  • Establish contact with key people in the agency.

  • Be selective as to where you submit your proposal.

  • "Sell" your proposal.
