How can someone learn to write grants quickly?
Grant writers get this question a lot. Deliberate practice is the most effective way to master this specialized set of skills.
Maybe not 10,000 hours, though in my experience, it really helps.
So, the short answer – they can’t.*
But that’s no fun, and not why you’re here!
10 affordable and practical training resources for aspiring grant writers
*It’s possible to learn quickly, through an immersive experience cranking out 1 or 2 applications a week for a single organization over a period of several months. This requires a dedicated focus to learning the craft, with the support of an experienced mentor. And caffeine. Lots of caffeine and chocolate.
Based on personal experience and stories from others, this can be an effective approach and helps you determine quickly if the work is a good fit, though it’s not highly recommended. Think graduate school, boot camp, or similar life-changing experiences.
Of course, there are also week-long workshops available to learn to write grants. I’ve heard a range of feedback from people who’ve attended, and they seem generally helpful. I think it’s a worthwhile option to consider for an organization with the resources (~$3,500) and time to send an employee through focused offsite training. I look for multiple sources of information and the perspective of many teachers when learning a craft. Everyone is different.
It’s beneficial to develop a personalized curriculum & seek out a variety of learning styles that support your continuous growth.
Many people have left this work behind after negative experiences with grant projects, low success rates, burnout and/or the trauma of being in dysfunctional organizations with poor management, ineffective programs or disengaged staff and board members.
I was very nearly one of them. I’m glad I found ways to stay in this line of work, and share a few lessons.
Next week I’ll share 5 tips that are helpful for grant writers. For more guidance on writing quality grant proposals, see “Why is it so hard to win grants?” from last month.
Do you have grant writing resources or learning strategies to add? If so, please share in the comments below.

This paragraph offers clear idea designed for the new users of blogging,
that in fact how to do blogging.
My partner and I stumbled over here from a different
web address and thought I may as well check things out. I like what I see so i am just following you.
Look forward to looking into your web page repeatedly.
I’ve been browsing online greater than three hours lately, but I by no

Hi there, I think your site could be having web browser
compatibility problems. When I look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer,
it has some overlapping issues. I just wanted to
give you a quick heads up! Apart from that, excellent website!
I also have trouble with IE, even though I put the site through various tests for compatibility.
I recommend using a different browser if the issue persists.
First off I want to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing.
I have had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there.
I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the
first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost just trying to figure out
how to begin. Any recommendations or tips? Many thanks!
Great question! And thanks for reading.
I try to allow both time and physical space to write, with as few interruptions as possible.
In early stages, I use bullet points to get the ideas on paper, rather than trying for complete, fully formed sentences.
Sometimes it helps me to do something else first (either on a laptop or paper, whichever tools I’m using).
Then my brain gets to moving along, and I can more easily transition into putting thoughts down on paper for the topic I want to write about.
For instance, I might type up some handwritten notes from a strategy meeting, then realize I’m ready to do free-form writing to respond to a grant narrative question.
Great post but I was wanting to know if you could write
a litte more on this topic? I’d be very thankful if you could
