preparing proposals some suggestions
Preparing Proposals – Some Suggestions
  • Plan how to use the space available effectively
  • Ask colleagues to act as ‘critical friends’/referees on draft applications
  • Read the guidance notes on the application form carefully and make sure all the key issues are covered
  • Formulate the aims and objectives in simple, clear and precise terms and explain why the selected methods and modes of analysis are appropriate to these
preparing proposals some suggestions1
Preparing Proposals – Some Suggestions
  • Anticipate potential problems (e.g. access, ethics, response rates, etc)/criticisms and state how these will be addressed
  • Be realistic about timescale
  • Seek advice from your Finance Office on the costs/check eligibility in ESRC Research Funding Guidelines (esp. staff costs)
  • When applying under research programmes take up, at an early stage, any opportunity to discuss applications with the Programme Director

Preparing Proposals – Some Suggestions
  • New researchers – small grants or joint proposals
  • Contact your nominated referees in advance to ensure they will be willing and able to comment and think the research is a good idea!
  • Provide a bibliography
  • If appropriate, identify and consult potential users of the research
  • Describe the expected outputs and how they will be communicated
