Grant Writing: Practice and Preparation of University Health Educators
Kleinfelder, JoAnn; Price, James H.; Dake, Joseph A.
American Journal of Health Education, v34 n1 p47-53 Jan-Feb 2003
This national survey of health education faculty (n = 282) found that the vast majority (88%) had been awarded a grant in the past 5 years, usually in amounts of less than $10,000. Less than one in four had received grants of $250,000 or more. Although less than one in four faculty (23%) felt prepared to write grants immediately following graduation, four of five currently felt prepared to do so. Two barriers to grant writing were identified by a majority of faculty: heavy teaching loads (68%) and administrative or committee assignments (55%). Finally, 90% of the faculty thought grant writing should be part of formal graduate student training, yet only 65% reported offering grant writing training to their graduate students.
