GRANT WRITING TIP

Don’t use the words “could” or “would.” Always use “will” and “can”—you’ll sound more confident that you will get the money and that you will follow through on your project.

Don’t use jargon unless you know that everyone reading your grant is in your field and will understand what you’re saying. This goes for acronyms, too—make sure you spell them out on first reference.
