Proposal grant writing

Tips on writing a grant proposal

Why so many links to info on writing grant proposals? Isn't there one best way to do it? Not exactly. Many proposals, while sharing some common elements, still will differ from other proposals in some way and thus it's helpful to know what different authors believe constitutes a strong proposal. Also, it's frequently helpful to read how different authors approach the same topic.

Some links on this page are difficult to categorize as they contain different types of information related to the writing of grants. Thus you are encouraged to scroll through the entire page to identify resources of interest to you. Some information on this page comes courtesy of Sigrid Trombley, grants specialist with Wichita (Kan.) Public Schools.
