260.625.01 SCIENTIFIC GRANT WRITING
- J.-Marie Hardwick
Covers the critical components of a scientific grant application, common errors in grantsmanship and how to avoid them, grant application review criteria, ethics related to grant writing and reviewing, and identification of funding sources. Students prepare a short (6-page) proposal and a revision of this same proposal following review. Proposal topics are selected by the student and developed with the instructor. Students also prepare critiques of classmates’ anonymous, instructor-edited proposals for discussion in class.
Upon successfully completing this course, students will be able to:(1) identify essential components of hypothesis-driven research plans, (2) construct a compelling research grant proposal that reviewers can appreciate, (3) gain grantsmanship skills by identifying the strengths and weaknesses in other proposals, (4) experience the strengths and caveats of a peer-review system.
