Doors to my online course, Grant Writing Fundamentals, are closing soon. You already know this. And if you’re ready to join us, here’s the link:
But maybe you’re on the fence, and you’re wondering if the investment is worth it. I can’t (and shouldn’t) make that decision for you. But I can give you data to help you make your decision. Grant Writing Fundamentals will take four weeks of your time and it costs $595.
It took me three years to learn the skills in this course. That’s because I didn’t know where to start. I spent a lot of time hunting and pecking for information. I designed Grant Writing Fundamentals to save you from hunting and pecking. You don’t have to be on your own. I’ll be there to answer your questions, and you’ll have our Slack community for support.
My first grant, a National Science Foundation grant, brought in a total of $366,793. The original grant was for $292,177. We received two supplements: one to support research assistants for $16,000, and one to extend our work for $58,616. In case you’re wondering, I’m not in an “easy” to fund field. I study children and disasters. I’ve been told many times that my area is “so niche” and “not fundable.” You may not be in a field that awards large grants. But the benefits of grant writing extend beyond money. Once I received my first grant, it was easier to secure later grants. I stopped being told my work was “so niche.” It was easier to negotiate raises and jobs. I get to choose my collaborators, focus on ideas I care about, and support trainees.
I want that freedom and control for you too.
