Write a Winning Proposal
Educational Pack: 50+ pg. Executive Report + 60-Minute On-Demand Webinar
The EAGER funding mechanism may be used to support exploratory work in its early stages on untested, but potentially transformative, research ideas or approaches. This work may be considered especially “high risk-high payoff” in the sense that it, for example, involves radically different approaches, applies new expertise, or engages novel disciplinary or interdisciplinary perspectives.
EAGER supports high-risk/high-reward work that involves:
- Radically different approaches;
- Applying new expertise; and/or
- Engaging novel disciplinary or interdisciplinary perspectives.
EAGER grants can be a real stepping stone for researchers early in their careers or a good option for a project that is in the back of the mind of a mid-career investigator. These types of proposals are not reviewed externally. The program officer makes the decision based on internal review only, so connection with the program and program officer are key success factors. Your knowledge of the process and the sort of projects that get funded are crucial to developing a successful strategy
Inside this educational pack you will learn to determine if your project is eligible with the EAGER mechanism, learn how to prepare a winning proposal, receive a collection of previously funded EAGER projects examples and analytics of why they were successful, how your budget will influence your review, and much more.
