Has anyone here applied for a research grant?
We've spoken about quite a few things here on R Voice. This morning I realized we don't talk much about research grants. Strangely enough, although I've read a lot about grant funding, I'm curious to hear from someone who has gone through the grant application process. I want to learn more from a first-hand experience about aspects like:
- When did you apply for a research grant?
- What was the process?
- Did you have help preparing for your grant application?
- How long did it take?
- Did you win the grant?
- How was the overall experience?
I feel like sharing experiences around this will help others at some point in the future. Please do share if you've had any experience with research grant funding and how it was for you. If you know of someone who did (perhaps your own lab head/supervisor) and would like to talk about how they went about it that would be great too.
