Sitting down to write a grant application? Recently submitted a proposal or been successful in the last MRC board round? Building grant writing skills is a great way to help secure funding. With experience of working with various MRC boards and panels, Dr David Crosby, Programme Manager for Methodology and Experimental Medicine, has a pretty good idea of what they’re looking for. Here he describes how to master the application process and make your grant stand out from the rest.
Hi all, To start, I am an undergrad in microbiology and I am in the process of writing my 1st official (not for a class) grant proposal for my research project. However, I am nervous as hell and not really sure how to write a proper grant paper. I have collected a decent amount of literature to support my experimental designs but i guess putting them in a understandable manner is somehow eluding me. I am just wondering if there are tips for 1st timer like me in writing stuff like this.
