Seeking an experienced grant writer to take over a project to develop and submit an application for an NSF funded program. I don't have the staff to do this so am considering outsourcing. This may be the first of many. We are a new, small 501c3 and have never applied for a grant before. We can supply the research methods and details we will be offering for this grant, but need someone experienced in dealing with US government grant application filing because they will need to fill in the application and successfully submit it.
THE NSF GRANT SUMMARY: Organizations are critical to the well-being of nations and their citizens. The Science of Organizations (SoO) program funds basic research that yields a scientific evidence base for improving the design and emergence, development and deployment, and management and ultimate effectiveness of organizations of all kinds, and advances our fundamental understanding of how organizations develop, form and operate. Successful SoO research proposals use scientific methods to develop and refine theories, to empirically test theories and frameworks, and to develop new measures and methods. Funded research is aimed at yielding generalizable insights that are of value to the business practitioner, policy-maker and research communities.
Consistent with NSF merit review criteria, each SoO proposal should discuss both the intellectual merit and the potential broader impacts of the proposed research. SoO values basic research that has the potential to provide broader societal benefits. However, the majority of space in any proposal will need to be dedicated to the explication of theory, methods, and specific contribution to the evidence base about organizational effectiveness. Projects that aim to implement and subsequently evaluate particular organizational training, effectiveness or change programs, rather than to advance fundamental, generalizable knowledge, are not appropriate for SoO.
