Institute on Writing Grants.
Goldstein, Harris K.; And Others
The proceedings of this institute cover sources for grant proposal ideas, grant proposal writing procedures, the content of a grant request, procedures of granting agencies, and problems in carrying out granted projects, including report writing. The relationship of the granting agency to the grant recipient is viewed throughout as a partnership, rather than an adversary connection. Types of grants include: planning, research, training, demonstration, equipment, facilities, and program development and/or expansion. Federal funding agencies are listed in material published by the Government Printing Office; private agencies, in the Taft Information System. For a grant proposal to be funded, it must be feasible, specific, have a competent and experienced research director or principal investigator, and fit the funding agency's policies. These proceedings discuss budgeting, the handling of grant money, and the hiring of personnel, focusing on probable problem areas. Examples are cited from the experience of the institutional research team at Delgado Junior College (Louisiana). References to printed matter and studies which might help in writing grant proposals or in carrying out granted projects are given throughout. (NHM)
