The Writing Successful Grants KnowledgeBase is an online resource aiding education professionals in their pursuit of public and private grants to support local programs. Its five elements contain information and resources that assist the grant seeker with developing their project, writing the grant proposal and managing the grant upon its award.
Task 1: Review Proposal Requirements and Elements
Guideline: Prior to writing the grant proposal, the grant seeker must know and understand the funding source's requirements including the proposal format (number of pages, font type & size, margins, etc.) and expected information elements. A proposal meeting those requirements at least warrants the funder's consideration. Failing to follow the submission requirements can cause an outright rejection.
