This paper provides an overview of grant proposal writing in Information Systems. In particular, we focus on where to find calls for grant proposals, how to write proposals, the proposal review process, and what to expect when a proposal is funded. Guidelines for writing proposals include writers becoming involved in the grant review process to gain a better understanding of how the granting process works and avoiding such pitfalls as writing proposals to increase salary, recognition, or university standing. The proposal writing process is a challenging task and this paper, based on a grant writing workshop at AMCIS 2005, provides support for navigating the process.
