Grant-writing is an art. We give you a basic guide on resources that can ease the stress.
Grantsmanship is the art of securing funding for research. Unless accompanied by a skilled understanding of how to approach a grant application, even the highest-quality research ideas will go unfunded. Yet most researchers receive no formal training in grantsmanship; instead they learn by trial and error, and some stressful early applications. A number of online resources provide guidance on the basics, and research management bloggers publish informal, invaluable advice tailored to individual research councils.
