This compact resource analyzes and demystifies the processes of applying for, competing for, and getting funding for research. Neither a cookbook nor a template, it encourages readers to apply the critical thinking and attention to detail they use in their investigations to the pursuit of the grant. Chapters delve into choosing among funding options, project planning and writing, filling out the materials in the application packet, and troubleshooting for problems at various steps of the journey. Along the way, the authors also explore common myths of grantsmanship and alert readers to hidden pitfalls that can get an otherwise good submission rejected. Among the core skill areas covered: · Using strategic thinking throughout the application process · Understanding the major grant mechanisms · Navigating the grant timeline, including the peer review and the vetting process · Writing the effective project description · Following up if the project is not funded or funding is deferred · Building a career grant by grant Brimming with expert knowledge, Grantsmanship for New Investigators ably balances motivation with realism. The authors’ deep understanding and experience of how funding agencies arrive at judgments will inspire readers to present their research in the most convincing manner
