Finding Funding: Grantwriting for the Financially Challenged Educator.
Brewer, Ernest W.; And Others
This book provides educational administrators with guidelines for exploring grants, writing successful grants, and implementing and terminating funded projects. Following an introduction that describes the pros and cons of seeking federal support, Part 1 provides general information about grants and the funding game and a review of tools to help the grant seeker and proposal writer. Part 2 addresses the specifics of writing successful grant proposals. It provides information on the basic components of a standard proposal, tips on reviewing and responding to a request for proposal (RFP), and a sample funded proposal. Steps that an application goes through are described, and key players in the grant-making process are identified. The third part examines the implementation, operation, and termination of a funded project; and describes Education Department General Administrative Regulations (EDGAR) and the nature of site visits and audits. Appendices contain a list of abbreviations and state points of contact. Fifty-four figures are included. (LMI)
