Item Details

This highly acclaimed, best-selling book in the ACE Series has been created for novice grant seekers who need instruction on how to begin the grants process, as well as for seasoned grant seekers who want to learn new techniques to save time and increase their success rate. Now in its seventh edition, this book will help you work smarter, not harder, in the pursuit of grant support. Several colleges that use this system report success rates of 75 percent. This new edition of The "How To" Grants Manual seeks to improve success rates to an even higher percentage. Advances in technology and changes in grants and research programs due to changing institutional budget priorities have prompted the author's preparation of this seventh edition. Revisions to grant-seeking strategies have caused the author, working with grantors and advisory groups, to retool the manual's worksheets and communications templates. These extremely useful supplementary materials are available by contacting textbooks@rowman.com. Please send an email, and our textbooks coordinator will be able to send you the materials."
