Steps for Successful Grant Writing

The successful steps of grant writing include the Five Ps, starting with passion, progressing through planning, persuasion, then persistence and patience. Those key steps are the foundation for developing a proposal for a grant that can be successful.

Develop Evidence through Quantitative and Qualitative Inquiry

Research requires appropriate inquiry. It is important to ask the key questions so that the inquiry can produce the relevant evidence from the systematic search. Quantitative and Qualitative inquiry are the means, or method of how you search for data that can be applied in practice. Developing evidence through appropriate inquiry takes the knowledge information- research, and produces knowledge transformation, or evidence-based practice.

Ethical Considerations for Evidence-Based Practice Inquiry and Implementation

There are seven key ethical principles that are applied to research, which starts with the social and scientific value. The scientific validity is then reviewed, followed by checking that fair subject selection, favorable risk-benefit ratio, independent review, respect for subjects, and informed consent are all addressed. These seven key principles guide EBP inquiry.

After completing this unit, you should be able to:

  • Identify steps for successful grant writing.
  • Develop evidence through quantitative and qualitative inquiry.
  • Describe the ethical considerations that guide evidence-based practice inquiry and implementation.
  • You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

    Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

    Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

    The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
