Grant process flowchartWinning proposals start with a great idea. While the "need" that is addressed in a proposal is important, most sponsors evaluate a proposal based on its merit and impact. Principal investigators should have a clear idea of the goals and objectives of the project. Examples of goals and objectives include the creation of a course or curriculum, the improvement of a laboratory, the development of novel teaching materials, or the preparation of future teachers. Winning proposals often result in a significant improvement over the current practice. Proposals that depict innovative concepts receive funding. In addition, a broad impact that affects a significant segment of the community enhances the likelihood of funding.
