Six Steps to a More Competitive and Organised Grant Application

What are your tips for being more competitive and organised when it comes to writing a grant? Here are 6 from me:

  1. Prewrite.
  2. Know your funding sources.
  3. Prepare your application based on those funding sources and their preferences.
  4. Say “no” – Not all people, grants or situations are equally worthy.
  5. Plan ahead (a year calendar will help).
  6. Practice – You cannot improve without practice.
