Think-Write: Writing targeted grant proposals
Winning a grant is not easy, and grant writing always carries a distinct element of risk. It is, however, an essential part of academic life. Carefully targeting the right funding body, and selling your idea can improve your chances. Writing the grant with an efficient process can also minimise the time taken and leave you free to get on with your work, or wring another grant.
The process is complicated by the need to demonstrate the feasibility of you project, not just in terms of academic milestones you hope to achieve, but in the justification of the sums of money requested, the timescales you propose to deliver them in.
