Finding Funding: Grantwriting from Start to Finish, Including Project Management and Internet Use. 4th Edition.
Brewer, Ernest W.; Achilles, Charles M.; Fuhriman, Jay R.; Hollingsworth, Connie
The materials collected, developed, and compiled in this volume are mostly related to grant-proposal development for education, but the push for uniformity in grants among the various federal agencies means that the materials have wider application. Some of the ideas and tips may be of general interest and value to a grantwriter; some ideas about "project management" should benefit anyone operating a project. The book is divided into three major parts and several additional supporting sections: Part I discusses the planning and some of the major "tools of the trade" needed to get started in the grant/project field and to use the Internet to access funding resources. Part II covers some important steps in developing a successful grant application. Part III discusses both closing out a project annually and the often difficult but realistic element of terminating the project at the end of external support. This handbook includes problem definition, analysis of need, goals and objectives, activities, some management details (timelines, personnel, budget, reports) evaluation, and dissemination of results. The work is about exploring, writing, implementing, and terminating an idea as a strong proposal and as an operating project. Appendixes include list abbreviations, state points of contact, and a glossary. (Contains 51 references.) (DFR)
