This hands-on guide provides a step-by-step process for writing proposals that get results, and gives an inside view into the scientific grant community. Written by a scientist accomplished in grant writing, Getting Science Grants demonstrates how to distinguish outstanding proposals, write clearly and persuasively, choose funding agencies, avoid common pitfalls, and develop productive relationships with "funders."
The guide includes a companion website that offers links to funding sources and examples of successful proposals.
"This book is a goldmine of useful information. It is very affordable and represents a powerful tool for preventing the many wasted hours and frustration that always arise for the first time proposal writer." — David E. Clapp, PhD, PE, CIH
