Why Academics Have a Hard Time Writing Good Grant Proposals
Porter, Robert
Journal of Research Administration, v38 n2 p37-43 Fall 2007
When they are new to the grant game, even scholars with fine publishing records can struggle with proposal writing. Many are surprised to find that the writing style that made them successful as academics is not well suited to crafting a winning proposal. To succeed at grant writing, most researchers need to learn a new set of writing skills. This paper discusses the contrasting perspectives of academic prose versus grant writing, and lists strategies grant specialists can use to help researchers break old habits and replace them with techniques better suited to the world of competitive grant proposals. (Contains 1 table.)
