Grant Writing Basics for Beginners


ALLIANCE PARTNER: Synergy Learning Institute

Learn the basics of grant writing – AND the strategy behind it – so you can use your resources and efforts effectively. I’ll share the secrets you must know BEFORE you start grant writing. You’ll walk away with tips you can customize to your school, nonprofit, or grant writing business immediately.


You know</strong> you could be a good grant writer, but how do you go about it?

You’ve heard grant funding is out there, but how do you persuade funders that THIS is the cause they need to support?

If you’ve ever struggled with any of these questions, then stick around.

A lot of resources teach you bits and pieces of how to write a grant, but most people don’t realize there’s so much more to it than that.

I’ll teach you how to step back and evaluate the bigger picture to be sure you’re using your resources and efforts most effectively.

In this course you’ll learn:

  • The basics of how to get started grant writing
  • Background work you must do before you even apply for grants
  • Top 10 myths and misconceptions about grants that may be holding you back
  • Where to look for grants
  • What a typical grant application includes
  • How to develop your grant project
  • What to do next when awards are announced, whether you win or lose
  • How to write better goals and objectives for your grant applications
  • Common reasons grants are rejected – and how to avoid 9 common mistakes

You’ll have a workbook and quizzes along the way to check your comprehension. Then we’ll wrap it up with the Course Project and Final Exam to help you with your next steps of grant writing.
