Reviews & endorsements
"This is a well-written text for the purposes of enlightening the readership on proposal writing. I highly recommend it for use by those in the early stages of seeking funding for their careers in science and engineering."
IEEE PulseSee more reviews
"… a practical guide aimed primarily at early career academics considering the major challenge of writing applications for project grant and fellowship funding. With success rates for proposals reduced to an all-time low, help on how to be competitive is precious … strongly recommended if you are a postgraduate biology student, postdoc or young group leader."
Andrew Taylor-Robinson, The Biologist
"… offers valuable advice … Recommended."
