This article presents a comment on success in grant writing. According to the survey of 92 administrators of mass communication programs, successful grant applications rank in the top 10 in importance to successful faculty performance. To increase the success rate of grant proposals, many universities hold faculty seminars with representatives from a research support or graduate studies office making presentations. The objective of the author is to obtain specific criteria on acceptable grant proposals from the people who review proposals in mass communication research. According to reviewers, grant proposals in the communication area are almost exclusively quantitative.
