Proposal Writing TipsTips for writing suggestions
Application tips and advice
Give a face-to-face period of one months before the period of the awarding agent - it always lasts longer than you think to shine the proposal. Take a look at the most recent scholarship holders and the title of their projects: Do they endorse the kind of work you are suggesting? If necessary, please notify people for arbitrator notices, letter of assistance or letter of undertaking as early as possible - give them enough notice to include them in their diaries.
If possible, look at past success stories (call the programme manager or the Office of Grants). Encourage your fellow Members - from other areas too - to consider and criticise your proposal. Receive information about the grant and the fellowship. The employees of the funding office will be pleased to give you feedbacks from the point of views of the funding agent.
If you are in any doubts, please consult the person responsible for the programme to obtain an answer to your question. Don't give up if your proposal is not financed on your first try; ask for the expert's comment and use it on your second try. Grent Writing is utilityistic, not creativ (the creativeness lies in the conception of the project).
Restrict the use of offers - they take up precious room that should be used to describe the product. Seek clarification - your proposal must be comprehensible to trained laypersons, but also to any expert who could be in the peer group. Carefully reread each of the words in the RFP (Program Notice or RFP ), mark important points, and then reread them.
Describe your research projects as part of your overall research projects. Demonstrate the importance of your projects (not having done it before is not convincing enough). Remember that the evaluators want to see an "ordered mind" at work in your proposal. Refer to each point or criteria in the policies.
Show your acquaintance with the latest bibliography on your projects. Insert a timetable for your work; you would like to prove that the research you propose is practicable within the suggested time frame of the work. Make a sound by using the proactive rather than the inactive vote; your letter should mirror the trust in your projects and the financing ahead.
Have at least one panellist enthuse about your proposal - 50% of the suggestions are never debated. Think about giving a description (such as deadlines or locations) to help you make your work clear. Collaborate with the Office of Grants. Letter mail should appeal to your projects and your specific skills for implementation; a debate about your pedagogical skills is usually not very useful.
Remember that these mailings can help to remedy possible shortcomings in your proposal, such as the absence of a success story, the importance of research or the viability of the proposal.
