  • Unless you are able to convey your research project’s impact clearly and concisely while engaging reviewers even a miracle research breakthrough will be ignored.

    Effectively communicating your research vision is no easy task. It’s easy to lose focus and fall into writing overlong or esoteric sentences. Do this, and you’ll endanger your ability to engage the reviewer. Without engagement, you’ve lost your audience along with any hope of getting published, your grant approved, and/or your research funded.

    There is help available.  By downloading the training sessions in this Grant Writing Training Bundle pack, you’ll be able to more successfully communicate your research vision, and significantly improve your chances of getting your research funded.  Then you can spend more time conducting research, instead of writing grants.
