The Grant Writing course will help you write persuasive proposals. According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, advocacy, grant making, and civic organizations had 1.2 million wage and salary jobs in 2006.

Grant writing is the skill of asking for money in the form of a grant from a foundation, organization or a government agency in the form of a document. This document contains information on how the money will be used, by whom will it be used and who will undertake the tasks which are described in the proposal. Grant writing is, however, not as easy as it seems. The Grant Writing course will hone your grant writing skills.


 

Grant Writing needs a lot of research and patience. It takes time to make a plan, coordinate the plan, write, and package and submit the grant writing proposal. Persistence is the key to grant writing. The ExpertRating Grant Writing Certification course is a valuable course that will teach you the necessary tools and techniques required to enter the field of grant writing.

This lesson will teach you how to show the funder that you have a well-thought-out plan for spending grant monies. You'll learn how to look at the program design section from the funder’s viewpoint, how to collect the right information, and how to spot poorly written narrative in this section.

You'll also learn how to steer clear of the age-old errors that other grant writers make when planning and writing this section.
