This paper examines how, even without a staff of experienced grant writers, and even in an economy where more investigators are seeking dwindling supplies of grant money, it is possible to be successful in obtaining funding. It provides a step-by-step account of the mechanics required to write a successful grant proposal.

From the Paper:

"In the writing itself, a common problem that eliminates some grants from consideration is a poorly focused and poorly written research plan. Although they have extensive education, the investigators writing up this information for the grant writer, or being interviewed about it by the grant writer, may be unaware that precise language is necessary; otherwise, there might be miscommunication that will eliminate the proposal from consideration. One case in which a grant was not obtained involved a researcher in a medical subject who wrote that "lightly anesthetized animals" would be used in the study. Some reviewers misread the intentions and thought that the animals would be inadequately anesthetized and would therefore suffer mistreatment. That application was rejected on ethical considerations without even being reviewed."
