Write a Science Grant Application - 3 August 2022

If you want a long, successful career as a scientist, you need to know how to prepare an effective grant application or proposal – knowing how to articulate and align your ideas with the priorities of those providing funding is a critical skill. Grants may be needed for external or internal funding from the government, not-for-profit and private sectors. While they may vary in length and scope, the basic principles are the same, and receiving grant funding is essential if you want a career as a research scientist.
