Research grants are an essential component in supporting academic research programs. Formal education on grant writing is typically unavailable to graduate students despite the beneficial nature of this knowledge for professionals in the field of behavior analysis. This panel features 3 behavior analysts who have experience obtaining grants. This presentation will review where to search for funding, what types of grants are available, best practice in proposal writing, maintenance of grant funding, and how students can get involved in the grant writing process. Learning how to write a competitive grant proposal is essential to funding meaningful research that suits the needs of both the researcher and the funding entity. Panelists will answer audience questions and provide recommendations to students interested in research grants.
