This book has been updated and revised to help beginning students and grantwriters write an effective proposal, which increases their chances of success. The Third Edition of Proposal Writing: Effective Grantsmanship is not an exhaustive text on proposal writing; its purpose is to provide a solid foundation upon which to add years of experience to fine-tune grant writing skills. Authors Soraya M. Coley and Cynthia A. Scheinberg de-mystify the grant writing process and provide a guide to writing that is as jargon-free and simple to use as possible.
