Grant Getting

Tomorrow is the deadline for Faculty Development grants in the Department of Medicine. Although each discipline has its own conventions for grant writing, I still go back to a slender pamphlet I first encountered as a graduate student.

The Art of Writing Grant Proposals reveals the unspoken rules that funding committees follow. As they read, they always have three questions in mind:

  • What does the applicant propose to do/learn?
  • Why is it worth doing/learning?
  • How do we know the applicant is qualified?

Keeping these questions in mind will help your application stand out in the pile.
