Course Description

Did you realize that you are most probably an experienced grant writer already?
 
"NO", you say, "I've never written a grant in my life before" -- but you have.

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, learning the 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.
