Nail the story, win that grant

6 rules to crafting a compelling proposal

So you have a brilliant idea for your next research grant or award application, and now you need everyone to “get” its value and significance.

You know that persuasive packaging is important. Your colleagues and assessors will judge your work not only by the quality of your ideas; they will also be swayed by how you tell the story.

You need state-of-the-art communication tools to make your application simply irresistible!

"It was pitched at just the right level and provided tools that were purposeful and ... dare I say, often overlooked within an academic setting."
