Be Assertive and Proactive

• Discuss your research proposal with the funding agency, if you have any questions about their interest in your type of research or the application process

• Don’t rely on one submission

• Seek out details of grant eligibility

- Gathering supporting documents

- Adequate time to solicit and incorporate feedback from others

- Last minute revisions to proposal

- Internal reviews and approvals

Grant Application Tips (cont’d)

  • Spend whatever time is needed to present a well-thought out proposal

  • Be certain to submit all of the funding agency’s required materials ON TIME

    Don’t let your proposal be rejected because of an oversight on your part.

Understand that MANY more proposals are declined than awarded.

  • Overall, proposals are increasing and dollars are decreasing

  • At NSF & NIH, less than 25% of proposals are awarded
