    Grant Writing...

    Just completed a grant writing seminar.

    Anyone have any last minute advice for someone about to enter the fray of the desperate search for funding?

    I found a great grant letter:

    God GRANT me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    the courage to change the things I can
    and the wisdom to know the difference.

    Re: Grant Writing...

    Whats the grant for and who are you submitting it to? I've had a couple courses where grant writing was incorporated into the class and have written one small grant (which got rejected). Thats about the extent of my grant writing experience, but I'm very much interested in discussing the topic and learning more.

    I think a lot of it is just knowing who or at least what type of people are going to be on the review board/process. You have to be able to write convincingly, which means that you have to know your audience so that you can appeal to them and what they will understand.
    I typically cite original research papers and reviews that are available only to a personal or institutional subscriptional. If you wish a PDF copy of the papers I cite, send me a request.
