Show your proposal to your colleagues, seniors and friends and listen to what they say. If they misunderstand what you were trying to say, don't say "you misunderstood me"; instead rewrite it so it can't be misunderstood. If they don't immediately see the value of what you want to achieve, rewrite it until they do. And so on.
This isn't a big demand to make on someone. Ask them to read your proposal for 10 minutes, and say what they think. Remember, most scrutiny committee members will give it less time than that.
Make sure that the first page acts as a stand-alone summary of the entire proposal.
Assume that many readers will get no further than the first page. So don't fill it up with details about the technical background. Instead, present your whole case: what you want to do, why it's important, why you will succeed, how much it will cost, and so on.
Criteria for a Good Grant Proposal
Most funding agencies apply similar criteria to the evaluation of proposals. We discuss these below. It is important to address these criteria directly in your case for support. A proposal which fails to meet them will be rejected regardless of the quality of its source.
Major criteria
Here are the major criteria against which your proposal will be judged. Read through your case for support repeatedly, and ask whether the answers to the questions below are clear, even to a non-expert.
