How to Fail in Grant Writing

In yesterday's The Chronicle of Higher Education, the article "How to Fail in Grant Writing" provided a humorous take on exactly what NOT to do when putting together a grant proposal.

Authors Elizabeth Jakob, Adam Porter, Jeffrey Podos, Barry Braun, Norman Johnson, and Stephen Vessey all have experience with grant rejection, whether from being a program officer, a grant reviewer, or a grant writer. They give a tongue-in-cheek look at all aspects of the grant package, including content, format, literature review, etc.

Read it at The Chronicle's website here.

For those of you who would like a more positive take on grant writing, read David Stone's "Becoming a Successful Principal Investigator" from July 7th Chronicle.
