HORT603 - Grants and Grantsmanship
- 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.
