News & Notes


In a previous edition of the ORB, we
published a list of grant writing tips
presented at an AERA conference we
attended. We think these are still
relevant and hope you find them useful.

Tips from the Top:
In the next 10 years, pressure
to get grants will increase
Pay attention to what your
institution thinks is important
Institutions are providing
training, but becoming
successful is a long-term
process
Get over feeling defeated
Look for an upward
trajectory: Write better
proposals and learn from
rejection
Choose an agency or
foundation that has funded
similar research to what you
are proposing to do
Go to websites and look at the
type of work or research the
agency or foundation is
seeking
When possible, look at good
examples of funded projects


* It is useful to know people
who have an insider's
knowledge and perspective
* Foundation funding in
particular is about
relationships
* Foundations tend to be less
interested in research than in
programmatic ideas
* Many foundations begin the
process by asking you to write
them a letter
* Some foundations will tell
you what you need to do to
make your idea more
attractive to them
* Be prepared to go more than
halfway toward what the
foundation wants to fund;
developing a relationship
with a foundation may be
challenging. You can end up
doing all of their work, so
help them be realistic about
what you can contribute
* For junior faculty, it is smart
to start out seeking smaller
grants and establishing a track
record
* Junior faculty should avoid
spending too much time in
project management








Consider becoming a member
of a research team or a co-PI
on grants, instead... at least for
a while
Multidisciplinary
collaboration is very
important!

As always, the OER is here to support
your grant seeking efforts. Let us know
how we can help!
