About the Author
The CRADLE (Creative Research Activities Development and Enrichment) program offers our faculty a comprehensive professional development opportunity. Four of the graduates of this program have received NSF CAREER awards in 4 consecutive years. In the previous 20 years we only received two. By far the most popular aspect of the CRADLE program is the one-on-one meetings. The faculty appreciate the accountability as well as the guidance from David Bauer.”
S. Bruce King, associate provost for research, Wake Forest University

This book is long overdue. I have watched David Bauer develop the grant coaching approach over the last 20 years and have witnessed wits effectiveness personally. Several of my publications have documented the gains faculty received as a result of their participation in a grant coaching program. My only regret is that I did not have an opportunity to experience grant coaching early in my own academic career.
