Choice Review

Written by professionals with real-world grant writing experience and designed for novice grant seekers, this guide focuses on federal funding for specific fields. However, with its logical organization and clear presentation of the essentials, it will benefit grant seekers in all fields as they prepare to apply to all types of grant makers. Beginning with material on the impetus to seek funds and ending with post-award responsibilities, it covers finding funders, effective proposal writing, budget development, submissions, reviewer responses, and award management. This third edition reflects a newer funding culture with tight budgets, different funding models, electronic submissions, and a preference for collaborative projects. Featuring an attractive format with graphics, tables, boxes, good-sized fonts, appropriate white space, and chapter summaries, the book is easy to read. Appendixes address FAQs; key acronyms; selected Web sites; sample timelines, budget sheets and flowcharts; and guidelines for evaluating collaborative teams. Summing Up: Recommended.
