This book helps grant writers in higher education to secure funding. It identifies positive and negative attitudes that affect producing highly desirable and fundable proposals.
A Steps and Guidelines section helps make sure the reader finishes the book with a clear idea of how to prepare successful proposals. A separate segment on Preparing Budgets shows how to prepare budgets that will impress the reviewer and also how to test a budget to ensure that it is reasonable and sound. Information is included that is designed to help grant writers match their own reasons for writing grant proposals with the expectations of the potential funder. Several actual proposals written by the author that have been funded are provided as examples. The book identifies the essentials in a proposal package and explains how to develop each segment.
Designed as a professional development resource for all faculty in higher education and individuals in all areas of K-12 education, particularly those in administrative capacities.
