Tips on searching for grants or writing grant proposals?
I've spent many years with non-profits, but it's finally time for me to suck it up and learn how to deal with grants. (I find the whole process a little intimidating.)
I'm working with CEPEC, a non-profit in California working to create a world class equestrian facility. Since I founded our local collegiate equestrian team and my degree is partially in education, I'm working with them to develop an educational/academic center.
My task right now is to research grants that provide funding for research for new education programs (like a new degree). Then I'm sure I'll be writing the grant proposals next.
I know there are a ton of resources online, and I plan to read through them all. But are there any COTHers experienced in this who would be willing to help me through the process?
If I do a great job with them, it can open up the position for my dream job. So I'm trying to make sure I send them top-notch work.
