This is the updated and revised third edition of the standard guide to grant writing for health and human service professionals in academic and practice settings. Since the publication of the 2nd edition in 2003, the grant world has witnessed dramatic changes, from constraints in budgets to significant transformations in the submission process. This new edition is still geared both to inexperienced grant writers and those who have had some success but would like to expand their knowledge of grantsmanship.

The book lays out an approach to thinking about grant writing and the necessary vocabulary and knowledge to effectively read a funding opportunity, determine its appropriateness to pursue vis a vis your ideas, and level of professional development, and the processes for applying for funding. This edition also includes expanded coverage of important areas including how to develop a grant budget, implement effective trans-disciplinary collaborations (an approach that is being advocated in many of the new NIH funding opportunities), interpret reviewers' comments, and manage a grant project upon its award.

As in previous editions, each chapter is peppered with examples and helpful tables that summarize key points; outline specific questions to ask colleagues, program officers and administrators to obtain the critical information you need for success; and appendices full of specific examples and templates.
