  • Kevin KunklerEmail author


In the current environment of dwindling national level funding, the need to properly identify and successful apply for funding is ever more critical. Armed with your research strategy, assuring that the funding source aligns with your strategy and not vice-versa is critical. Diligence in reading the announcement or solicitation carefully is important to assure qualification status, time-lines, budget allowance, and many other critical factors. Involvement of a program manager and editorial team is important with increasing chances of success.
