OSP Updates DMP Information Added to DMP Tool for Biology and Chemistry Funding bodies like the National Science Foundation now require that researchers supplement their grant proposals with a Data Management Plan (DMP). DMPs are short, formal documents that outline, at the onset of a new project, how you will handle your data both during your research and after the project is completed. Our office has added GVSU-specific information to for the biology and chemistry directories. If you have any questions on this, please contact our office at 331-6826 or grants@gvsu.edu.

Cayuse Training Videos Available on Blackboard Questions about how to use Cayuse? Need a quick review on the Cayuse system? Cayuse training videos are available on Blackboard for your convenience. These short videos cover a variety of topics including frequently asked questions. If you have any trouble viewing the videos, please contact the Office of Sponsored Programs at 331-6826 or grants@gvsu.edu.

Grants News Tips to Improve Grant Proposals Adapted from The Chronicle of Philanthropy, April 15, 2014

From beginning to end, grant seeking is all about good communication. “It really comes down to relationships and getting to know people." - President, Community Memorial Foundation Eighty percent of the grant applications that cross Debbie Rey's desk are immediately rejected. Ms. Rey supervises the central proposals-processing office at the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, in Battle Creek, Mich., where the bulk of the proposals to the foundation are first vetted. The reason so many don't pass muster: The applicants didn't do their legwork. They may have glanced at the grant maker's Web site, she says, but they didn't dig deeper to learn Kellogg's specific grant-making priorities. "A lot of people, when they're doing research, read the philosophy statement, but they don't go into the detail, into the different departments to see what initiatives we have going on," she says. Ms. Rey echoes the sentiments of many grant makers: Nothing is more important when applying for a grant than having the right information. "They don't spend the time upfront to really research and see if there's a match," he says. "I always say that the time they spend researching will be returned tenfold." Where to Start Organizations should take a look at the grant maker's Web site, annual report, and informational tax return. Those sources can hold a gold mine of information about the foundation's assets, past grants, giving priorities, contact names, and guidelines for seeking grants. Careful examination of an organization's Web site can help grant seekers draw connections that may aid them in preparing their applications, says David Littlefield, communications officer at the California Wellness Foundation, in Woodland Hills. For instance, he says, "We have an environmental health area that some people might not think of as health -- the impact of things like a safe work space on health." A look at the Lilly Endowment's Web site shows that it has geographic limits for most of its grants. "We do a lot of education grant making, but it's virtually all in Indiana," says Gretchen Wolfram, communications director of the foundation in Indianapolis. If, after pouring over the available information, a charity still questions whether its programs are a good fit, it should check with the foundation, says Andrea L. Reynolds, chief operating officer of the Community Foundation of Greater Memphis. Large foundations often take time for a five-minute chat with a potential grantee. The Community Foundation of Greater Memphis will even meet face-to-face with people who want to apply for a grant. Follow Directions Once a charity identifies a foundation that's a likely prospect, carefully following the guidelines is key, emphasizes Ms. Freshley. Rules exist for a reason, she says. "When we say 10 pages, we're really serious about that," she says. Some people, she says, just squeeze 12 pages' worth of type onto 10 pages by using small type and narrow margins. (continued on Page 4) Page 3


(continued from Page 3) "It just makes the program officers work harder," says Ms. Freshley. "They may be reading 250 proposals. You don't want people to have to dig through your information to find the kernel of what you're talking about.� Patience and Persistence Foundations are often flooded with proposals, so it takes time to sort through them, says Ms. Rey. The Kellogg Foundation, she says, receives thousands of proposals each year -- and it could take applicants as long as 12 weeks to get a response. Grant requests are turned down for all sorts of reasons, many of which do not reflect badly on the program, says Ms. Englebardt. "Just because they didn't get a grant is not a comment on the quality of their program," she says. "The hard part is none of the foundations have the resources to fund everything that fits their guidelines. That's the heartbreaker." "Each foundation has its own strategy about how it is trying to make a change in the world," she adds. "They're trying to put together the pieces that make that change. And there is a certain amount of luck in being one of those pieces in a market like this where there just isn't enough funding." Not getting a grant doesn't necessarily mean a door has been permanently closed, says Jane C. Geever, a fundraising consultant and author of The Foundation Center's Guide to Proposal Writing (2001). Charities may be able to win money during another grant-making cycle. In fact, it's a good idea to give the foundation a call to find out why a proposal was rejected, she says. "Most grant makers say that if the agency is a fit, they will encourage the organization to come back with another proposal," says Ms. Geever. "Everybody has time frames in terms of how long you have to wait." Even if it's unlikely the charity will get a future grant, foundations are often willing to suggest other grant makers to which the charity might apply.

NIH Begins Big Data Initiative From Grant Week, April 14, 2014 The National Institutes of Health has taken on the challenge of making Big Data accessible to the biomedical workforce by creating the Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) Initiative. BD2K aims to develop new approaches, standards, methods, tools, software, and competencies to enhance the use of biomedical Big Data. The initiative will support research, implementation, and training in data science and other relevant fields. To enable new BD2K users, NIH hosted a workshop in 2013 and has made available two videos (video one and video two) to help early career scientists better understand the research efficacies of Big Data for their ongoing projects. The BD2K website serves as a hub for NIH Big Data news, events, and funding opportunities, currently highlighting two opportunities to support faculty who want to acquire Big Data skills: Courses for Skills Development in Biomedical Big Data Science (R25) and Open Educational Resources for Biomedical Big Data (R25). Though the 2014 deadlines have passed, these two programs will also be offered in 2015 and 2016.
