Join Karl Kapp for an in-depth discussion in this video The one-page solution document, part of Grant Writing for Education.
- In reality grants are seldom written by one person.…Most often they are written by a team,…this is for several reasons.…Tackling large educational projects…requires different levels of expertise.…You might need one person who understands pedagogy,…and one who understands technology.…You may need a person who understands budgeting…and one who understands working…with teachers or administrators.…Another is that often individuals from several…institutions are collaborating on a grant.…If there are more than two people on your grant…writing team then you need a plan…for creating a coherent cohesive document.…
You don't want your grant submission…to read as if it's written by a team,…instead you want it to read as if it were written…by one person, it must have a single voice.…Sometimes this is accomplished by literally hiring…a grant writer to pull together everybody's thoughts…and ideas and write down those thoughts,…but more often than not a professional…grant writer is not hired,…and the team must pull together the document themselves.…
