Kickstarting grant success

Tip #1 Make sure you're eligible to apply. Read all of the eligibility criteria before starting an application.

Tip #2 Get in touch with the funding body before writing your application. It's better to ask them questions directly rather than guess what they're after.

Tip #3 NEVER change the format of a grant application. Funding bodies hate it.

Tip #4 Don't use fancy language just for the sake of it. Keep your grant applications clear and concise.

Tip #5 Make sure you answer every question. If you really don't think a question applies to you, write N/A at a minimum.
