GUIDES TO GRANT WRITING Many federal agencies include guidance on writing successful grant proposals on their web sites. For ex. the National Science Foundation (NSF) has many documents which are useful to researchers in all disciplines. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has a section called “Grant Writing Tip Sheets”. The Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) Web site has a section on developing and writing grants proposals. The Foundation Center’s Learning Lab has a proposal writing short course providing basic information for all fundraisers, academic and non- profit.
9 TIPS TO GRANT WRITING The project is the organization’s priority The proposal should follow an accepted format Writing: Clear, Direct, No jargon, An appropriate Story Research the funder thoroughly Take the time to build the relationship with the funder Reporting is critical even when not asked for No is not forever Give them only what they ask for Electronic applications are not an excuse
FEDERAL FUNDING The federal government is the single, largest grant maker to domestic state and non-profit organizations. Programs are well-defined and sponsor guidelines are specific. Proposals undergo peer review. Programs are competitive. Government is committed to making a grant award or contract.
STATE FUNDING State programs can be funded with either federal “flow-through” funds or with state appropriations. Programs are competitive or formula-based. The state of NJ is currently the largest contributor of external support to Stockton research and scholarship activities.
NJ AGENCIES FUNDING GRANTS AND CONTRACTS NJ Department of Education NJ Department of Environmental Protection NJ Commission on Higher Education NJ Department of Transportation NJ Department of Community Affairs and others… Visit http://www.nj.gov/nj/gov/njgov/grants.html for a list of NJ agencies and links to agency-specific grant programs.http://www.nj.gov/nj/gov/njgov/grants.html
LOCAL PARTNERSHIPS Consider county and municipal agencies as partners/collaborators Many lack the funding to provide grants, but would welcome an opportunity to collaborate on a project that is routed in the community that they service. Benefit: Geographic restrictions limit competitive pool. Local county agencies typically release public requests for proposals
PRIVATE INDUSTRY FUNDING Generally, private industry funding is provided on a non- competitive basis; however, a small but growing number of companies are using a competitive request for proposal mechanism. Industry sponsors are not committed to giving funds away, but are looking to fund research in areas that solve an industry problem (commercially viable).
CONNECTING WITH PRIVATE FUNDERS Professional/Scientific Societies Professional Conferences Journals/Publications Alumni from your doctoral program – Industry researchers graduate from the same programs! Establish profile on LinkedIn – Indicate in your profile that you're interested in consulting offers, job inquiries, and expertise requests. This can initiate conversation with industry contacts.
