Volume VII. Proposals for Research
The purpose of this volume is to share the proposals that I have made for research, including first of all those that have been funded and have allowed me to engage in an active research agenda, both at the University of Colorado in Boulder as a Research Professor and at Drexel University in Philadelphia as an Associate Professor.
Writing effective, competitive grant proposals is a delicate business. First, one has to conceive of a program of research that one would like to undertake and that is reasonable to attempt under the proposed conditions. Then, one must convince the funding source and their reviewers that the funding proposal should be accepted. This must be accomplished with a written document of restricted form, content and length.
Preparing a proposal is a challenging writing task, requiring project planning, persuasive presentation and organized narrative. In many ways it is like writing a professional research report for a journal, such as one would compose near the end of the prospective funded project, but it needs to include more than just the concept, theory, literature review and analysis. It also needs to demonstrate why the person or group proposing is the right one to do the job and detail how the work is expected to be accomplished with the requested resources.
