Take this popular, nationally-recognized Grant Writing Basics course online, at your own pace, in the privacy of your own home or office. You can move as quickly as you like through the course. Complete it in a few days or weeks, if you have the free time. Or, you can spread out your learning over a month or two, if you like.
"What I like most is the convenience of working from home at your own pace. This is especially important to me because I have a toddler at home that keeps me busy along with my 13 year old."
"I enjoyed using the course content to guide me in a real exploration of potential funding for a personal dream. It kept me moving my idea forward. If not for the course, I most likely would have shelved it. The greatest benefits were working at my own pace on my own schedule, which are paramount in my busy life. I stalled out completely during my daughter's basketball finals and picked up on it again when things settled down."
Paula Watt, Product Development Professional, Ashtabula, OH
When I researched 80 grant experts, I discovered that they follow a similar grant writing process and sequence of steps. We call this the "Idea Match" model.
Basically, here is how the Idea Match model works...
Grant Writing Basics walks you step-by-step through the Idea Match model.
"I liked the different observations of grant writing experts. Learning this information truly helped me to begin thinking about writing a grant. I have no experience and knowledge of grant writing and receiving this information was a great start for me."
Stephanie, North Las Vegas, NV
There are over 100,000 grant-makers (private and public) in the U.S. Over the years, experts have discovered that most funders want to see similar elements in proposals: 1) summary, 2) agency introduction, 3) need/problem statement, 4) outcomes/objectives, 5) project methods or design, 6) project evaluation in reaching outcomes/goals, 7) future funding after the grant is gone, and 8) budget. Interestingly, the Federal government also recommends these as the eight basic components to creating solid federal grant proposals (source: Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance at CFDA.gov).
Grant Writing Basics includes a 49-page text that explains these 8 sections that most funders want see. It includes a list of 25 study questions that focus your attention on the most important elements of the text/format. You will have a chance to critique 2 sample proposals and rate the proposals using our custom-made Evaluation Form of the 8 key proposal elements you are learning. All of this is designed to help you be comfortable with the format before you ever write a word. You gain confidence!
"I liked everything! It's well laid out. It's not just for beginners only. Anyone will benefit from all the practical information. I also like it being in bites. I'm not overloaded with information."
Beatrice Smith, Elgin, IL
When I researched 80 grant experts, I discovered that some recommend a Peer Review process prior to submitting a proposal to a funder. They say that Peer Reviews triple their chances of being funded. Grant Writing Basics includes tips for you to create your own Peer Review team similar to the one funders might use to pass judgment on whether you are funded or not. You will have a chance to participate in a Peer Review process and get valuable feedback you can use to edit your proposal draft and improve the final score your proposal will ultimately receive.
"Grant Writing Basics is a great help if you are just starting out or if you have written grants before. Evaluating other students' mock proposals is a very good method of seeing examples of what to do and what not to do. I didn't think about having friends and family also reviewing the draft proposal. I do better on a project when I am not rushed at the end."
Kristine Weeks, North Las Vegas, NV
You will learn how to conduct a pre-proposal contact with a funder to discover the scoring system they use. You will receive a list of questions to ask. You will receive worksheets and resources to help you create your own Peer Review team as well as 5 steps of your own Peer Review process.
Or, even if you've written a few. Most expert grant writers tell me that they wish they had training like this when they were thrown into grant writing with no training. You'll find tremendous value in what you learn or your money back!
"It's worth the money. What I liked most was making grant writing seem accessible and not mysterious. I like the way the information is broken down in small bits, so each idea has some time to be absorbed and processed."
Karla Nolan, Las Vegas, NV
