Mastering Grantsmanship

Discovering funding opportunities and developing grant proposals can be difficult. Now, a web-based grant-writing tutorial is available to help drug abuse researchers and programs locate and apply for federal funding, specifically grants from the National Institutes of Health and other government agencies.

Developed by Danya International, a Maryland-based health and human services consulting firm, the guide provides comprehensive information about formulating a research question, determining what kind of grant is most appropriate, working with a proposal team, writing different types of grants, understanding what happens after submission of the grant, and avoiding fatal flaws and common pitfalls of grant-writers.
