Competition for NSF grant awards is especially intense, as increasing numbers of proposals have clashed with the agencys budget constraints. Successful proposals are written by investigators who combine sound principles of grant writing with an understanding of NSFs overall merit review process. This workshop will focus on critical aspects of interacting with the agency as well as proven techniques for effective writing in each section of the NSF grant proposal. Samples from successful proposals will be cited to illustrate key points.
