Tactics for Submitting a Winning Proposal

Once you have constructed all the necessary sections of your R01 grant application, you are still not quite ready to hit the Submit button.

Inside this special report, you’ll learn tips for making sure your grant application works as a whole rather than a group of disconnected parts. Remember, your ultimate goal is to communicate that your research deserves funding, you’re the right person to conduct the research, and your institution is the right place to do it.

That’s why it’s important to review your proposal for content. Take a good look at the most important sections. Ensure your project summary is complete and your budget is in synch with your research strategy. Make certain you’ve adequately addressed your project’s significance, innovation and approach.

Must-have, step-by-step expert guidance includes:

  • Review the R01 application checklist — Have you got all the elements you should?
  • More than one PI on the project means special requirements … make sure you meet all of them
  • Submitting for subawardees? Keep these extra rules in mind
  • Your cover letter: Key details to include — and what to leave off
  • Picking your editors … key people who should review your application for both accuracy and readability
  • Your application should read as a whole story, so make sure these sections agree
