Title: Writing Proposals to Secure Grants
William A. Cooper
Senior Scientist Emeritus, NCAR

I will present opinions, developed during a varied research-scientist
career, on what helps a proposal succeed and what advice might be useful 
to early-career investigators. My advice is based primarily on my 
experience as a program office at the NSF but also from other roles in 
my career, including as a university faculty member, an NCAR scientist, 
and for almost 10 years a postdoc advisor as director of the Advanced 
Study Program. The talk will have three main parts: how to develop the 
project idea, how to develop a detailed project design, and how to avoid 
common problems when writing the proposal. My comments focus also on 
suggested ways to use grants to further your career, how to learn about 
grant opportunities, and how to communicate with program officers. I 
hope that this talk might be useful to those who expect to seek grants 
to fund parts of their research..
