Successful Grantsmanship at the Middle Level
Stinson, Karen; Renninger, Phyl
Middle School Journal (J3), v39 n1 p44-51 Sep 2007
Foundation and grant funds are one way to fund projects and programs. Money in the form of grant funds is not a panacea, but the extra resources brought in by grants can provide catalysts to launch new initiatives or to keep promising new projects going long enough to prove their merit and become sustainable. A small amount of money from a mini-grant can give a chance to try out new activities and purchase equipment and supplies not otherwise available. The authors recognize that middle school teachers, principals, and staff members are busy people. As busy people themselves, however, they can attest to the real advantages of investing time in following some basic grant development, application, and management suggestions to bring extra resources into the district. In this article, they provide basic suggestions for writing a proposal that has a good chance of being successfully funded. (Contains 6 figures.)
