Who is a successful grant seeker?  What are the strengths of successful grant seekers and the weaknesses of unsuccessful grant seekers?  The answers to these questions have not been established through scientific investigation.  The following statements are intuitive on our part based on observation of and interaction with both successful and unsuccessful grant seekers.  They are designed to alert you to some of the traits and attitudes that influence successful grant seeking outcomes.  Circle the number for each statement that you feel best represents you, and circle only one number per statement.  These items are not absolute, but be sure your assessment reflects your honest feelings.

Scoring Self-Assessment for Grant Seekers

It is important for both beginning and experienced grant seekers to explore their personal qualities, experiences, and skills related to the grants process.  You have just completed a brief sampling of these aspects that are important to successful grant seeking.  It will help you identify your particular strengths and alert you to some red flags you may want to think about.  Add up all the numbers you circled to get a total score.  If your score is over 30, you are probably reasonably prepared for successful grant activities.  If your score is below 30, examine each item closely and look for areas in which you need improvement and help.
