RESOURCES :: GRANTS

Grants are requests for cash support. All grant-making institutions share certain similarities: they have funding goals, usually focused around issues important to the funder; they must receive information about your plan in a timely manner; they must review that information - which is often in competition with other proposals; and they must make a decision as to which proposals should receive funding.
