Funding proposals are not the easiest (or quickest) thing in the world to write.
Not least for multi-tasking academics up against a wall of deadlines.
Jonathan O’Donnell, author of the most excellent Research Whisperer Blog, has a similar job to mine – supporting the writing of funding proposals at his university.
I like him. He has some good advice. I found this post – its called 5 ways to kill your application. I think its worth reading.
I hope you find it helpful too.
