“How to write good proposals”

(re HSSPFS)

CHU Hung-lam

The Hong Kong Polytechnic University

basic requirements
Basic requirements
  • Write to convince and instill confidence – serious and substantive and coherent
  • Clear and lucid – informed and logical, clearly thought through – to the understanding even of non-experts
contribution and knowledge for the project
Contribution and knowledge for the project
  • Show relevance of the project to a line of inquiry, its relationship to major issues in a field
  • Identify the research issues at stake, articulate their significance, explain the need to research them
  • Focus on a theme and delineate the boundary – keep the research under control
originality and ability
Originality and ability
  • Show the project’s originality – promise something new but not totally new, relate it to your past or evolving research
  • Show your ability to conduct and research and deliver the results
workability and timeliness
Workability and timeliness
  • Explain and justify your research and work plans, including the research and the write-up
    • What part(s) will be done by you and when
    • What part(s) will be done by others (RA or collaborator) and when
    • Show the connection, interconnectedness and integrity of teamwork
  • (HSSPFS) Present justification for the need of your project to be done here and now
technicality and prudence
Technicality and prudence
  • Follow the guidelines of the applications – e.g., observe the word counts, use bullet-points for presentation of aims and proposed output
  • Be honest to yourself – don’t let the editor dominate your language and idea in the proposal; let your track record reflect, inform and count for it.
side thoughts
Side thoughts
  • For historical studies (and for literature and social sciences studies?): don’t think that basic research (data and textual research) are too basic to be fundable; rather, show your way and ability to gather and exploit the source materials for a solution to the research issues involved
  • For philosophical studies: questions better be “big” (especially when no empirical data need to be gathered and exploited) to justify the “time” you need for the argument
the musts
The Musts
  • aim and need of the research must be clear
  • issues to tackle must be specific
  • work plan must be realistic
  • output proposed must be quantifiable
  • language must be unpretentious
