Tag Archives: grant writing as a career

In late 2018, many blogs offer insights about how to seek, find, get, and keep a grant award, how to write a grant proposal, and related topics. The blogs vary widely in longevity, source, style, scope, depth, and quality; each one is worth a visit, perhaps even a tour.

 

This first post samples some of the diverse blogs about grant seeking and grant proposal writing. Its illustrative topics are: assessments of need; career paths; choice of voice; collaboration and networks; development process; goals and objectives; and grant writing myths. The second post will sample the same blogs. Its topics will be: logic models; planning tools; prospect research; success factors; sustainability; and technical reviews. The context for both posts is the United States of America. Comments are always welcome.

 

Assessments of Need

 

Among grant seekers and grant makers alike, evidence of need is a springboard for action. On the Professional Grant Writer Blog, a post offers four ways to improve statements of needin grant proposals. The Grant Training Center Blogalso presents a post by Mathilda Harris about how to craft a compelling statementof need. GrantResultsoffers 16 tips for presenting an assessment of need(2012, revised 2017), as well as tips for addressing other common elements of grant proposal narratives.

 

Career Paths

 

Grant writing is a peculiar occupation. On the Grantsmanship Center Blog, Barbara Floersh explains how and why “grant writer” needs burialas a job title, since it is the grant maker that writes the check for a grant award, not the grant seeker; the position is more aptly called a “proposal writer”. In an engaging post on the Seliger+Associates Grant Writing Blog, Isaac Seliger explores work styles and writing habitsas occupational facets of developing grant proposals. GrantResultsdescribes what grant writers doand common career pathsas two posts in a five-part series (2017) about grant writing as a career.

 

Choice of Voice

 

As acts of writing, grant proposals must persuade as well as describe. On the Grant Writers’ Seminars and Workshops Blogare several useful reminders about the importance of voiceand word choice in persuading makers of scientific research grants. In an eloquent post on the Grant Training Center Blog, Mathilda Harris presents five aspects of writing stylethat improve the odds of winning a grant award. An incisive post by Holly Thompson about the power of consistencyin proposals, on the Grantsmanship Center Blog, is also apropos. GrantResultshas a post (2013) about choice of voice(formal/informal, technical/non-technical) in writing grant proposals.

 

Collaboration and Networks

 

Collaboration often helps position grant seekers to win grants; networking among grant seekers fosters collaboration. On the Grant Plant Blog, a compelling post describes the challenges and benefitsof collaboration among nonprofits. In a persuasive post on theGrant Helpers Blog, Roland Garton presents how inter-agency collaborationsmay stimulate partnerships and lead to more grant awards. Isaac Seliger, on theSeliger+Associates Grant Writing Blogoffers an entirely different take on the merits of collaborationin grant seeking. On a related topic, GrantResultshas a three-part series (2013, revised 2018) about creating and sustaining networks of grant seekers.

 

Development Process

 

Creating a grant proposal entails far more than writing. On the Grant Helpers Blog, Roland Garton explains how developing a proposal entails planning and researchas well as writing. An illuminating post in the Let’s Talk Nonprofit Blogdepicts writing grant proposals as having three legs(research, writing, and review). Similarly, GrantResultsoffers a post (2012) about the four dimensionsof developing grant proposals (research, communication, budget, and writing).

 

Goals and Objectives

 

In writing a program design for a grant proposal, a goal is the completed marathon, and objectives measure what it takes to complete it. On the Grant Professionals Association Blog, Lisa Sihvonen-Binder distinguishes between goals and objectivesand explains why they are not the same thing. GrantResultsdefines goals and objectives in a five-part dictionary of proposal developmentterms (2016, revised 2018). GrantResultsalso offers a seven-part dictionary of budget developmentterms (2016, revised 2018).

 

Grant Writing Myths

 

Myths about grant making and grant seeking abound. As an example, the Grant Geek Blogprovides a cautionary tale about several myths surrounding the ease of getting grantsfor businesses and individuals. A brief post on the Professional Grant Writer Blogdelineates five frequently encountered grant writing myths. In a discerning post on the Grant Training Center Blog, Mathilda Harris describes eight grant writing mythsthat confront grant seekers from the outset. GrantResultsprovides a (revised) 12-part series (2016) about the myth of omnipotenceand 11 other myths in the arena of grant funding.
