You’ve spent years in training. You’ve spent months developing a project, collecting preliminary data, publishing manuscripts, and training students. You’ve attended all of the grant-writing workshops. Hopefully you’ve followed our advice on a stress-free grant writing experience, and you’ve now spent weeks writing your grant, editing your grant, generating tables, graphs, and other figures for your grant. You successfully navigated the university grants office. And finally, FINALLY!!, after many years of hard work and sacrifice, you received an email from the granting agency confirming that they received your grant AND that all errors have been corrected. Whew!!
Not sure what to do now?
We’ve mapped out your next steps. Just follow our template for a successful and rewarding career in academic research. Or, use the same template to be one of those guys. It all comes to the same end, one happy, one less so.
