Rules that guarantee a 95% or better success rate are a mathematical impossibility. Someone will have to lose out, even when they all stick to these magical prescriptions.

By Jill M. Sullivan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I've been writing grants on my own for a few years with a very high success rate. I bought this book because I am about to embark on writing some large requests for foundation and federal funding. I was hoping to learn a few more tips from an expert. Boy did I get my money's worth! I wish I would have read this book before I wrote my first grant! There are tons of tips. The book is well written in a smart format that makes it quick and easy to read. I'll definitely use it for a reference text for years to come. Thanks Beverly Browning!

clear, precise and easy to use 19 Oct. 2002
By StalkingGhostBear - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I was struggling through a master's level grant writing course and hitting snag after snag in my own grant writing project. The text books for the course provided contradictory and confusing information that on the whole did not apply to the actual process of grant writing. I gave up and purchased Grant Writing for Dummie. I only wish I had gotten this book earlier. The book is well organized and walks you through the often convoluted process of researching, writing and submitting grant proposals. I appreciated the clear writing and colorful examples of how to phrase and document a grant proposal. I recommended the book to the professor but he was less than enthusiastic about the idea of replacing the standard class textbooks.

A magnificient resource! 1 May 2001
By Cheryl D. Cole - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Phenomenal! It is obvious that the author has many years of experience in the field. This book hits the mark if you want to become a grant writer,or more successful one.It takes you step-by-step in writing any kind of grant proposal. It is concisely written to help you put that grant application together. How to rate your organization. Write different proposals to different funders. Where to look for funding. How to stay on top of funding news. What to do after you receive funding. What to do if you don't get the money. I'm telling you this book tells you everything you need to know. I have read it over and over again like it were a novel. It is like the author is right there with you. I might have been a dummy before I read the book. I am no more. I am no longer intimidated. I have confidence now.I am a grant writer! Thank you Bev Browning.

A Very Helpful Guide to Writing Winning Grants! 18 April 2001
By L. Ebert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
One of the very best books I have seen on the ins and outs of writing winning grant proposals. Not just the usual information about the components of a typical application, but a comprehensive approach to obtaining grant funds including planning, researching, developing, writing and coordinating the whole grant process. Ms. Browning even includes important post-grant activities such as following up once the grant has been submitted. I found this guide priceless.
