Join Karl Kapp for an in-depth discussion in this video Narrative, part of Grant Writing for Education.
- The narrative of the grant proposal…carries a lot of weight.…The narrative is where you explain…the need for your project,…outline your approach to solving the need,…describe the project timeline, management process,…and explain why the project…is beneficial to the funding agency,…all within the given page constraint.…Three sample narratives from winning grants…have been placed in the exercise files,…take a look and use them as a guide,…but remember each funding agency asks for…different items in their grant narrative,…so follow closely the instructions…in the request for proposal.…
Also realize that each of these samples contains…elements of other parts of the grant…we will discuss further in this course.…I purposely included narratives from national competitions…and a narrative from a local…inter-institutional competition,…so you can see the different types of grants,…and the levels of effort required.…Any grant narrative should strive to grab the…reader's attention in the first paragraph,…and be especially compelling to draw…
