Grant Writing Guide

lai-grant guideBC Lynch School of Education and Human Development Associate Professor Betty S. Lai has written a practical guide to effective grant writing for researchers at all stages of their academic careers. The Grant Writing Guide: A Road Map for Scholars (Princeton University Press, 2023) features writing samples, examples of how researchers use skills, helpful tips, and exercises. Drawing on interviews with scores of grant writers, program officers, researchers, administrators, and writers, Lai shares best practices, common questions, and pitfalls to avoid. Lai explains how to craft pitches and align them with your values, structure timelines and drafts, communicate clearly in prose and images, and solicit feedback to strengthen proposals. Lai studies child mental health and has published more than 70 peer-reviewed articles on this topic. She has been recognized with awards from the American Psychological Association and the American Psychological Foundation.
