Using Logic Models to Improve Proposal Resubmissions (and Submissions)

Presented November 8, 2013

There can be many reasons that a proposal is not funded, but a common issue stems from a narrative that does not offer a solid, well-ordered, logical and convincing argument for the significance of the proposed research. Logic models can be used to not only strengthen proposal resubmissions but can be an invaluable aspect of new proposal development.

Logic models provide a graphical representation that describes how the work conducted will lead to the results you want to achieve—immediately, intermediately and in the long-term. These models allow you to test whether what you propose “makes sense” from a logical perspective as well provide a framework for designing the research and measuring success.

This presentation included an overview of logic models, a review of logic model templates and guidance on how to create a logic model as well as examples.
