The process of seeking and obtaining an externally funded research or training grant can be challenging for new, emergent and even senior principal investigators (PI). Here we provide a summary of the process you should follow, along with contact information for the people who can provide immediate assistance as you proceed at KRISP and UKZN.
Our principal investigators (PI) are continuously writing grants. This is normally not an easy task and it involves hard work, patience, perseverance and resilience. Here we provide a summary of the grants that we have prepared in 2018. We also present the awarded or rejected list of grants as we think that it is important to tell the truth about the competitive nature of research funding. Our objective is to assist you to understand the process and be prepared for competitive grants applications.
