GRANT WRITING TIP

As you begin your search for a grant, make sure to have the “three p’s”—a project, a plan, and permission.

Find a grant to fit your project, rather than creating a project around a grant.

Finally, get permission, or support, from your supervisor and partners for the grant. Your supervisor will likely be required to sign the paperwork, so be upfront about what you’re asking for.
