A veritable cookbook for individuals or corporations seeking funding from the federal government, The Complete Writing Guide to NIH Behavioral Science Grants contains the latest in technical information on NIH grants, including the new electronic submission process. Some of the most successful grant writers in history have contributed to this volume, offering key strategies as well as tips and suggestions in areas that are normally hard to find in grant writing guides, such as budgeting, human subjects, and power analysis. A "who's who" among grant reviewers, this guidebook provides "inside" information as to why some grants are scored well while others flounder during review. A must-read for both entry level grant writers making headway in the complex NIH grant system for the first time as well as more seasoned investigators who can't seem to break the barrier to funded research grants, Drs. Scheier and Dewey's comprehensive volume provides simple and clear explanations into the reasons why some grants get funded, and a step-by-step guide to writing those grants.

Review quote

Not only an excellent reference guide for how to write a NIH proposal, but it is also a tremendously useful source of information and insight to help demystify the federal funding process...This is a "must-have" book for anyone who considers writing an NIH proposal for the first time, but it is also ideal for grant writers in general and is valuable even for experienced NIH researchers. James M Topolski, PsychCritiques, vol 53, release 37
