Grant Writing Assistance

Proper preparation and presentation of your grant proposal is essential to securing external funding to support your research project. Working with a trained statistician with grant preparation and writing experience, as well as a proven track record, will dramatically increase your chances of being funded.

The top reason for grant rejection is a poorly designed research plan with inappropriate and/or specific detail related to the statistical methodology proposed.

Securing grant funding requires a convincing and compelling argument, backed up with a solid research methodology plan, including sophisticated statistical analysis and support.

We will work with you to prepare a grant proposal that is built upon a sound hypothesis that will produce solid, useful and reliable results directed at helping the funding agency better address the needs of its clients and community. We will work with you to present a concrete research plan with a detailed description of statistical analysis methodology, procedures, controls, and a solid evaluation plan to allow the funding agency to monitor effectiveness and assess whether the funds are making a difference. We will propose sound research methods that have proven practical application to the problems and issues at hand.

The second most frequently sited reason for grant proposal rejection is a lack of competence in the proposed investigators.

A successful grant proposal depends on the credentials of the individuals performing the research, and upon their track record or past research efforts. Teaming with a trained statistician possessing a proven funded track record will greatly increase your chances of being funded. As collaborative research team members in academia and industry, the BISC team has an outstanding record of productivity, with an impressive funding record and more than 200 manuscripts published in peer-reviewed journals.
