Course Description

Most people out there have asked somebody, at some time, for something in writing (one way or another), so you have most likely followed some of the basic principles and procedures of putting a good case forward for something you want (and not necessarily for money).

And basically that is what a grant proposal is all about. Okay, there's a little more to it than that--but the techniques you consciously (or unconsciously) learned when putting together those requests, when submitting them and SUCCEEDING, are a fabulous place to begin. BUT obviously you need to polish up that gem by building on the basics, learningthe techniques, and following the requirements and conditions for writing successful grant proposals.

And there is no better place to start than with this course. It doesn't supply all the answers, no one source does, but this approach to the subject of grant writing is clear, straightforward, and easy to understand.

It doesn't matter whether you are looking at grant writing just as a means of helping your child's school, or looking at it as a part or full-time career. You can and will be successful if you set your mind to it and invest a little of your time in carefully going through this course, researching sites suggested in it, and building from there.

Join us today, and let's learn how to write a successful grant proposal!

Course Lessons (7 days)

DAY 1:

  • Lesson 1: Know Your Grant Basics

    Grant proposals are requests submitted to individuals, foundations, or the government for funding.
  • Lesson 2: Projects and Proposals that Will Be Successful and Why

    Successful grant writers pull together all data, the evidence supporting their case, to paint the picture they wish the grant funders to see. By doing so, they set the stage for their proposed project clearly and precisely.

DAY 2:

  • Lesson 3: Grant Writing Could Be the Answer

    The truth of the matter is that many of us have far more extensive experience in preparing grant proposals than we give ourselves credit for. Have you ever asked anyone for anything in writing, particularly money?
  • Lesson 4: Where Is the Money?

    The classic foundation you will most often encounter during your work as a grant writer is one that was set up many years previously by a single individual, which legally makes it a private foundation.

DAY 3:

  • Lesson 5: Trends and Facts

    There are always facts you really should know but unfortunately do not. Even so, you can easily keep abreast of trends, and in this regard your best friend is without doubt the Internet.
  • Lesson 6: Key and Working Components of Great Grant Proposals

    This lesson will certainly help to make things clearer. It's all about looking at some of the bigger pieces of the grant puzzle, polishing them up, and putting them in place.

DAY 4:

  • Lesson 7: Action Plans and Their Timelines

    Your action plan is the comprehensive diagram contained in your grant proposal and plays a large part in achieving your goal of a grant.
  • Lesson 8: Designing, Establishing, and Utilizing an Appropriate Evaluation Plan

    Proper evaluation plans are tightly integrated into the grant proposal and connect project objectives and goals to their relevant evaluation. They are usually one of the last parts of the grant proposal narrative.
  • Lesson 9: Preparing to Write

    The very first rule of any kind of writing is to know and understand your audience.
  • Lesson 10: Words for the Wise

    'Words for the wise' as opposed to 'Words to the wise' relate to those extra words, phrases, techniques, and ideas cropping up that you realize can assist you in being a winning grant writer.

DAY 5:

  • Lesson 11: Reviewing Your Work in a Way That Underscores the Strengths and Reduces the Weaknesses

    A great strength is to see your weaknesses and work with them, acknowledge them, even highlight them at the right time, while at the same time showing how you are going to accommodate and allow for them, or alternatively how you intend to eliminate them!
  • Lesson 12: Budgets

    Your budget must support and be tailored to your project's objectives and goals.

DAY 6:

  • Lesson 13: Your Packaging Is Crucial; 'Gift-Wrap' Your Proposal Accordingly

    Whether we agree with the concept of not, packaging and presentation is nearly always crucial.
  • Lesson 14: Negotiating Grants

    There are plenty of helping hands for you out there; many offline and online sources are a fantastic help with not only finding grants but in the actual writing process.


  • Lesson 15: Miscellaneous Proposal Applications

    By far, the majority of grant proposals you will submit will be in the usual way. However, you need to be flexible; i.e., you need to at least be aware of the other types and methods of submission.
  • Lesson 16: The Triumphs of Successful Reporting

    The demand for accountability of and easy access to information on grants programs has increased tremendously over the past few years, so there certainly needs to be a change in attitude with relation to the standard of reporting regarding grant results.
