In many ways your Abstract is one of the most important parts of your grant application. It reaches a broader audience than just your reviewers. In fact, it becomes a permanent description of your project, accessible to the general public, the press, politicians and taxpayers.

Just like every section of your application, you must have a strategy for the Abstract. And in this case, you have to tell your proposal’s whole story in a very limited space.
