Grant Ethics: Ethics for Grant Proposal Need Statements



Grant Ethics: Ethics for Grant Proposal Need Statements
Session 4 of the Grant Ethics Series

The way grant professionals describe the needs of their community is an important part of persuading reviewers and grant funders to award a grant. Which need is greatest and most aligned to the funders’ priorities? Three key areas related to ethics in this area are the use of statistics, the description of the context, and the importance of citation. Each of these issues are important to every grant written. Yet, in an area of online grant applications, questions abound regarding how to still maintain the strongest ethical course while providing the most persuasive answer to why a funder should choose a particular agency and project to fund. Join us for a lively debate on these issues faced by those who write grants regularly.

What you will learn:

      • Key areas of ethical concern in writing need statements
      • Ways to address the most common challenges of statistics, context, and citations
      • Why the answers to these issues aren’t as obvious as they seem
