Grant Writing Resources

Form a Grant Writing Group!

It is an excellent idea to get feedback early and often when writing a grant proposal. Try talking with other postdocs in your college/department/center to set up regular meetings to share drafts and ideas. Get as many people as you can to read and give feedback. Don't be shy about asking professors/PIs to read your grant, and welcome criticism. It can only improve your application.
