Prepare a More Competitive Major Research Instrumentation Grant Application for NSF
Principal Investigators Association, December 2010, Pages: 60
60 Minute Audio Conference presented by Karen Markin, Ph.D
When you're talking BIG BUCKS - like Major Research Instrumentation Grants - the competition is fierce! You need every increment of improvement that you can get. And if you don’t address certain key differences in your MRI application, your funding request could be shut down before it even gets started.
Make sure you understand the unique aspects of NSF’s complex MRI application and get the advice you need to respond successfully to keep your proposal competitive. Without Dr. Markin’s expert advice for addressing the key differences of an MRI grant, your application's success could be in jeopardy.
During the Webinar, Dr. Markin will show you:
1. Exact MRI program criteria and how to effectively address them — including real-world examples
2. Tips and tactics taken from successful applications, on how to address challenges of "shared use" and "management plan"
3. "Broader Impacts" criterion: What it means to your application and how to define it for best results.
4. Learn the proven methodologies to set your project apart from the crowd and rise above your competitors
Give yourself the tools you need to make sure your MRI grant application arrives in the top tier of NSF’s funding list.
