Introduction to Grant Research and Proposal Writing

Successful grant writing involves the coordination of several activities, including planning, searching for data and resources, writing and packaging a proposal, submitting a proposal to a funder, and follow up.

A common mistake grant seekers make is not doing their research prior to submitting a grant proposal.  A successful proposal is well thought out, researched and written.  Going from an idea to a funded project or program requires time and effort.  This guide is created to assist students, faculty, staff and  potential grant seekers.

Library databases are good to get started on evaluating your idea and finding research to make your argument or statement of need.  

Use this presentation to get started finding books and articles for your proposal.
