Advice on Grant Writing

  • Start early; many grants have deadlines, so be sure you get all the required information in by the date required.
  • Visit campus offices that specialize in helping students gain research grants and read all of their available information
  • Be clear, concise, and realistic about your budget needs, the goal of the project, and how you expect to use the funding.
  • Research multiple grants or other sources for funding; many will want to know you are looking elsewhere too.
  • Pay attention to information on "matching" stipulations, as you will only get the grant if you find other funding means for the stipulated amount
  • When writing the grant application, be sure to include all requested information as fully as possible. Do not omit any requested information even if it does not apply to you, be sure to include an explanation of why it does not apply.
  • Use proper grammar and full sentences, and have someone else proofread your submission for any mistakes you may have missed.
  • Ask someone else in your field to read over your proposal and make suggestions for additions, alterations, or omissions.
  • Follow up with email, phone calls, and other appropriate means of contact.
