No Man Is an Island

  • Judith B. Margolin


On initial consideration, you might be tempted to skip right over this chapter about affiliation. After all, hasn’t it already been stated that thousands of grants are awarded each year by various types of funders directly to unaffiliated individual applicants? Isn’t the main premise of this book that it is possible to apply for, receive, and utilize grant money all on your own? The answer to these questions is yes, yes, almost unequivocally yes. And yet ... There are individual applicants who surely could benefit from some form of institutional affiliation. A number of grant ideas truly are enhanced by organizational sponsorship. Others more or less require it.
