A guide for educators seeking grants discusses the steps to take before, during, and after writing a proposal.
This resource for educators begins with an overview of the principles of effective grant writing. The authors (both successful education grant writers) share their expertise in locating various kinds of sponsors, understanding the Request for Proposals (RFP), and writing a persuasive proposal. The second half of the volume describes how to evaluate the success of a project as well as other steps necessary to ensure long-term program sustainability.
