Grant Writing Tips
- Refrain from using an excessive amount of jargon.
- Do not insert links or videos into your grant application - grant reviewers will not use this information as part of the review and selection process.
- Be sure to describe the need as it relates to your students, your building, or your program.
- Have someone (preferably not an educator) read your grant to check for understanding.
