What?s changed from the first edition of this book? More chapters! Clearly defined ?how to? steps! Tons of updated resources and Websites! Guidance in self-publishing, developing a newsletter, developing workshops and becoming a presenter! Information about interning with Dr. Bev and the importance of networking with other grant professionals and continuing education!In the first book, I assumed anyone purchasing the book would be an experienced grant writer. However, ongoing feedback from book readers helped me to realize that many purchasers of the book had no experience in writing grant proposals. In this second edition of How to Become a Grant Writing Consultant, I begin in Chapter 1 with How to Learn the Process of Grant Writing and guide non-grant writers with some basic definitions and point you to Websites and books (yes, I always endorse my own books) to learn the process of grant writing. You can find books by other authors on your own.Once you learn the process of how to write grant proposals, in Chapter 2, I help you understand the steps it takes to transition from being an employee (a grant writer for someone else) to starting your own home-based grant writing consulting business. In Chapter 3, you will learn how to structure your new consulting business. Chapter 4 guides you through the basics of logistically setting up a new business in your home environment.In Chapter 5, I give you a menu of possible services to offer prospective clients and discuss cash flow strategies. Chapter 6 covers the most important information, how to set your fees! If you?re wondering how to develop your first business contract and other handy templates, Chapter 7 covers these critical new business essentials.In Chapter 8, you will learn how to develop marketing tools or documents to promote your new business services. Worried about how to find clients, Chapter 9 shows you how to find potential clients. Once you have landed your first contract, Chapter 10 guides you on how and where to start with a new client.In Chapter 11, I tell you how to become an expert, building a track record and using my age-old formula for determining your funding success rate?a critical marketing tool. Chapter 12 gives you the ?inside scoop? on how to manage multiple projects?to increase your cash flow. If you follow all of my advice in the first 12 chapters, you will surely need Chapter 13 where I tell you how to expand your business and staff (hire others to help you).In Chapter 14, I talk opening and honestly with you about how to self-publish?what it takes to write and publish your own books. A lot of criticism in my first ?How To? book came from readers who had no clue on how to start their own newsletter. Well, in Chapter 15, I give you Websites and insider clues on how to determine your target readers and setup your own newsletter. In Chapter 16, I share with you how to develop workshop titles, create curriculum, and find opportunities to present?for pay!In Chapter 17, I give you an overview of my tuition-based internship program and tell you how to become one of my coveted and well-trained interns, whether you need my mentoring in writing more winning grant proposals or in starting up your new grant writing consulting business, I CAN help you! In my last chapter, Chapter 18, I talk to you about the importance of networking with other grant professionals and share experiences from my own professional affiliations.This book is not a rewrite of my first edition, it?s an entirely new book?with fresh ideas, timely tips, and lots of virtual ?hand holding? to start you on the road to professional fulfillment and financial success!One final word, my intent in this book is not to tell you the ?only? way or the ?best way?, but rather to present general information and allow you to make your own decisions for your new business. The approach I want you to take when reading this Second Edition is to: Read, Decide for Yourself, Take Action.

Writing high quality grant applications is easier when you know how research funding agencies work and how your proposal is treated in the decision-making process. The Research Funding Toolkit provides this knowledge and teaches you the necessary skills to write high quality grant applications. A complex set of factors determine whether research projects win grants. This handbook helps you understand these factors and then face and overcome your personal barriers to research grant success. The guidance also extends to real-world challenges of grant-writing, such as obtaining the right feedback, dealing effectively with your employer and partner institutions, and making multiple applications efficiently. There are many sources that will tell you what a fundable research grant application looks like. Very few help you learn the skills you need to write one. The Toolkit fills this gap with detailed advice on creating and testing applications that are readable, understandable and convincing.

The Grant Writing And Crowdfunding Guide For Young Investigators In Science

The Grant Writing and Crowdfunding Guide for Young Investigators in Science is a guide that prepares young investigators in Science to step up to the challenge of funding their own research. Writing a successful grant demands much more than a first-class inquisitive scientific mind, as young investigators soon discover. The book presents the best strategies they should adopt to prepare themselves prior to taking the grant plunge. It then helps them draft a reasonable budget plan, assemble a winning grant team, write a stellar preproposal, and reassure the funding agencies that the financial risk they take in investing in them will produce great returns. The book also helps them write a grant title, abstract, and a specific aims section that highlight the significance, impact, and innovativeness of their project. It presents specific tools to catch problems early and avoid rejection. To improve the submission, the book presents a new source of funding: crowdfunding. It gives the young investigator a way to collect preliminary results and involve the public in their work. New investigators are usually lost when attempting to write their first grant application. The book is dedicated to them. It acts as a coach that supplements the work of the mentor. It is meant to be concrete. Although it considers the review practices of two of the largest grant organizations in the world, NIH and NSF, it is sufficiently generic to apply to other science funding agencies.

Over the last fifty years behavioral and medical research has been generously supported by the federal government, private foundations, and other philanthropic organizations contributing to the development of a vibrant public health system both in the United States and worldwide. However, these funds are dwindling and to stay competitive, investigators must understand the funding environment and know how to translate their hypotheses into research grant applications that reviewers evaluate as having scientific merit. The Second Edition of ‘How to Write a Successful Research Grant Application’ is the only book of its kind written by federal research investigators which provides technical assistance for researchers applying for biobehavioral and psychosocial research funding and can give them an edge in this competitive environment. The book provides invaluable tips on all aspects of the art of grantsmanship, including: how to determine research opportunities and priorities, how to develop the different elements of an application, how to negotiate the electronic submission and review processes, and how to disseminate the findings. Charts, visual aids, Web links, an extensive real-world example of a research proposal with budget, and a "So You Were Awarded Your Grant—Now What?" chapter show prospective applicants how to: - Formulate a testworthy—and interesting—hypothesis. - Select the appropriate research mechanism. - Avoid common pitfalls in proposal writing. - Develop an adequate control group. - Conduct a rigorous qualitative inquiry. - Develop a budget justification of costs. - Develop a human subjects of animal welfare plan. - Write a data analytic plan. - Design a quality control/assurance program. - Read between the lines of a summary of the review of your application. Although its focus is on Public Health Service funding, ‘How to Write a Successful Research Grant’ is equally useful for all research proposals, including graduate students preparing a thesis or dissertation proposal. Service providers in community-based organizations and public health agencies will also find this a useful resource in preparing a proposal to compete for grant funds from state and community resources, non-government organizations, and foundations.

Competition for research funds in epidemiology, preventative medicine, and biostatistics has never been more intense and, at the same time, the grant application and review process at such agencies as the National Institutes of Health (NIH) is undergoing significant transformation. Writing Dissertation and Grant Proposals: Epidemiology, Preventive Medicine and Biostatistics targets effective grant proposal writing in this highly competitive and evolving environment. Covering all aspects of the proposal writing process, the text: Provides summary checklists and step-by-step guidelines for grant structure and style alongside broader strategies for developing a research funding portfolio Explains how to avoid common errors and pitfalls, supplying critical do’s and don’ts that aid in writing solid grant proposals Demonstrates proven tactics and illustrates key concepts with extensive examples from successfully funded proposals Written by an established NIH reviewer with inside knowledge and an impressive track record of funding, Writing Dissertation and Grant Proposals: Epidemiology, Preventive Medicine and Biostatistics is a virtual cookbook of the appropriate ingredients needed to construct a winning grant proposal. Therefore, the text is not only relevant for early-stage investigators including graduate students, medical students/residents, and postdoctoral fellows, but also valuable for experienced faculty, clinicians, epidemiologists, and health professionals who cannot seem to break the barrier to obtain NIH-funded research.
