One weird trick to get a research grant

Some excellent tips in here, especially reviewing applications for an overseas funding body. We all want applications to be assessed quickly and efficiently so the more quality assessors there are in the pool the better.

This post also provides a useful reminder to us administrators that we have a role to play to. We need to encourage people to become reviewers and assessors and this in turn will help our own institutions as we will have an experienced pool of people who can support high quality applications.

I would certainly recommend that academics take these opportunities seriously as they can really enhance the ability to write a good grant application.
