Five top grant tips

November 16, 2019

Like food, air and water, these are the absolute basics you need to get right with grants. As simple as they are, you would be surprised how many people fail to follow these five top grant tips.

Get these right, and you will already be ahead of many, many others.

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 provider 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 providers 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.
