Tips for Successful Research Grant Proposals
Suggestions provided by the Faculty Development and Grants Committee (April 2008)
In general, read the guidelines carefully and address each point and sub-point as directly as possible in the appropriate section.
Additionally, follow these five suggestions:
- Itemize the budget, especially if requesting expenses.
- Provide as much detail as possible about the methods or steps you will take.
- Discuss your activities relative to a detailed timeline.
- Remember that most members of the committee will have little or no experience in your field. Explain your project as if you were writing for a non-specialist.
