You have read through the National Network of Libraries of Medicine, Middle Atlantic Region’s Requests for Proposals. You have a great idea for a project. Maybe you have even talked to some potential partners. Now what? It’s time to “Get the Okay” to apply for funding.
From whom might you need to get the okay?
It’s important to get the okay early – often, the people in your institution responsible for approving the grant application will need some time to review before submission. That means you may need to have the application written a few days or even a couple of weeks prior to the official application deadline. These departments can also be great supports to you – they may offer advice or support in writing funding applications and have ideas for other potential funders.
