Partnerships vs. The Lone Ranger

  • people partnerships

  • institutional partnerships

  • reputation and prestige


Sustainability

  • additional revenue streams

  • institutional commitment for life after the grant


Your track record

  • “Durability and consistency” vs flash in the pan

  • can you produce the “deliverables”


The deliverables—they are everything to the funder

  • may be a novel concept to some academics

  • defining deliverables—

    • specific

    • measurable

    • realistic

    • achievable

    • accountable


Beware the funder’s vigilance for the “shifting costs” game!


The all important potential for replicability and scale up


The “recognition factor”—impact on younger faculty


Emulate the Nobels: Stay focused “for the duration”


“Time-to-Name-Recognition” calls for mentoring


Being “brought” to a funder vs the cold call


Respect program officers! And why even though they may not be from the academy (and not just because they have the money)


The importance of building in assessment to your project


Learning the culture of potential funders


Learning the priorities of funders


Funders want socially redeeming (read applied) results


The importance of project staff diversity


Just as in English 101, writing quality matters


Ask for a planning grant


Aim high and why


Treat your funders as if you work for them even though, by law, you don’t. And beware of the entitlement mentality.


Work towards reciprocity


Take heart: even the little but good gals and guys can win.
