Are You Smarter Than A Fifth-Grader?

Wednesday, November 24th, 2010

If you’re nervous about writing a grant, think of a grant proposal as asking someone for something that you don’t have to pay for. You ask your spouse to buy things, don’t you? You may ask your employer for an upgrade in your technology or a new company vehicle. What about your parents? Surely you asked them to buy you a car. Regardless of the outcome, you have experience devising a strategy to get someone else to provide you with cash or something that you desperately needed—and putting that strategy into words. You made a case for your cause, and you presented your best justification. Guess what grant writers do?

If you’re still anxious about tackling a grant proposal, just remember how many wives, teenagers, fifth-graders, and even five-year-olds have had success with their urgent requests. Remember your own successes, relax, and read this blog. The Grant Whisperer will help you tackle your first grant proposal (and many more) without fear.
