  Establishing Scientific
Credibility in 5-6 Pages…!!
         Your job is to build a story that:
Budget          -- Defines your question
                -- Established your credibility
                -- Gives confidence to the reviewer
                        that this is money well spent

     Establishing Scientific
   Credibility in 5-6 Pages…!!
1. Define your problem.


2. Support with your background (Why are you
   the right person to look at this?)


3. Align it with a NASA Center project, if
   applicable

1. Define your problem.
         This is not a scientific paper….
         Keep it simple
         Keep it current
         Put it in context
         Identify steps towards a solution
         Tie your work plan to your budget

       Check AO for good connection to your interests
       Get in touch with contact person
                 Remember…

   This is not a referendum on
  your potential as a scientist…
LASP Communication and Outreach will read drafts,
comment on SoW and budget relationships, etc.

If you have questions about the program, talk to your
advisor or…
