The Research Funding Guidebook
Getting It, Managing It, and Renewing It

Edited by:


October 1997 | 272 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
This hands-on guide begins at the point many grant seekers can identify with - rejection. Part One emphasizes how to resubmit unfunded applications to make them more competitive. The material contained in this section is invaluable, especially since funding sources are now limiting the number of times the same application can be resubmitted. Part Two highlights the practical issues of a project after funding has been obtained. The authors provide a map of the people and places that must become part of a researcher's daily and weekly routine, a checklist to aid the newly funded researcher's progress, and guidance on the essential but often overlooked feature of research funding, time management. Subjects of other sections of this volume include the `small business' aspects of maintaining funding for a project, and the process of targeting continued funding by determining the next fundable step of a project.
