Having Success with NSF: A Practical Guide is about helping researchers achieve success in funding NSF research proposals by discussing aspects of the proposal submission and review process that are not typically communicated to the research community.
Written in a practical approach, Having Success with NSF: A Practical Guide offers tips that will not be found in official paperwork and provides answers to questions frequently asked of NSF Program Directors. The purpose of the book is to improve your NSF grant-writing skills and improve your chances of funding.
The NSF receives over 44,000 requests for funding each year of which it funds between 11 and 12,000.
