One of the semi-regular features I hope to keep including as this blog goes on are tips and tactics for people to keep in mind the next time they are working on a grant.
Tip #1 - Never ever insert clip art all throughout your proposal narrative. It is just annoying.
Pictures of your programs, projects? Fine. (if it fits within the guidelines, always read the guidelines!)
Clip art? No. It's cheap, cheesy and it makes it look like you are just trying to make your narrative look longer than it really is.
