Common Reasons for Failure

  • Failure to use your resources wisely

If the institution has limited or no research capacity, don’t propose to put students in research labs on your campus. Find alternatives

  • Lack of clear and well-defined measurable objectives. “Having a seminar series” is not a measurable objective and neither is “creating an atmosphere of science”

  • Missing or inadequate baseline data

Reviewers need to know your starting point and what will change as a result of your proposed program
