Abstract: The academic world revolves around research which is both a requisite to achieve a degree, as well as part of the job description of academics. Obtaining a research grant is often essential in order to cover the running costs of a research project. Once a research proposal has been formulated, with the help of supervisors/collaborators, both tangible costs and non-tangible costs can be calculated. These predicted values are essential when applying for a research grant. Different funding opportunities are available from different sources, often both local and international. The latter funding bodies are usually either dedicated to a specific disease or process. It is essential to identify the appropriate funding opportunity according to the funding body's priorities and guidelines so that the grant can then be accordingly formulated. The great majority of funding sources issue competitive calls, so the aim of your application is not to show that the researcher deserves funds, but why the study in question is the one most deserving of the limited funds available. In any funding application, the strengths of the individual researcher/research group and the relevance of the project itself are the main two selling points. However, without a well prepared management plan, applications flounder. This paper will outline how best to target and formulate this approach.
