Instructor Resource: Transition Guide
Writing Grant Proposals That Win, Fourth Edition offers step-by-step instructions and clear examples of how to write winning grant proposals. It offers practical guidance on how to:
- Express the need for the project.
- Describe objectives and activities.
- Outline an evaluation plan.
- Create a workable project budget.
Readers will come away with a clear understanding of how reviewers function and what they are looking for in proposal sections, as well as what is needed to maximize every aspect of the proposal.
The tips to help you create winning sections include how to: assess a program announcement and ensure that you address each requirement, condense your entire proposal into a brief but compelling abstract, determine what appendices to include (and in what form) for maximum impact, adequately describe project dissemination and continuation plans, use technology - including desktop publishing, graphics, color, and spreadsheets for budget development - to enhance your proposals, and structure your proposal to increase your chance of winning.
The Fourth Edition is a thorough update with all new charts, graphs, tables, and figures; as well as new examples, and coverage of current topics.
