Grant Seeking in Higher Education

Strategies and Tools for College Faculty

San Francisco, CA - Grant funding has become increasingly crucial to universities and university faculty, even as government and private funding reductions and increased application pools result in a more and more competitive environment. Securing the funding which is available is not a simple process, and institutional support for faculty who seek grants is uneven, where it exists at all.

Faculty members are often left to navigate their own ways through the shifting landscape of the grants maze. When added on top of teaching and service loads, it’s no surprise that many faculty members either avoid seeking grants altogether or produce grant proposals which have little or no chance of being funded. Faculty need a guide, and GRANT SEEKING IN HIGHER EDUCATION (July 2012, Jossey-Bass) is that guide.

Written by a team of successful grant writers, the book orients faculty to the grants culture and walks readers step-by-step through the entire grant-seeking process, from identifying sources to preparing a successful application to administering the funds after the grant is awarded. The grant-seeking toolkit includes standard forms, templates, and timelines for proposal development so any faculty member, from the scientist to the humanities scholar, can be sure not to miss out on the funding they deserve.
