We have read over and over again that it is better to submit a proposal earlier than on the day it is due. Yet even with the best intentions, we often end up working right up until that deadline. As grant writers, we all have tales to tell: horror stories that are funny now, but definitely not then. Here's my embarrassing, completely true story.
Grant professionals know there are common attachments required for most grant applications that are usually readily available. But sometimes, funders want documents that aren't as easy to find or need to fit certain specifications. How can you be prepared to have all the docs you need ready before it's time to hit the submit button or mail the hard copy proposal? Read on for some tips that might help you prepare.
My favorite mantra as a grant professional is “Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.” This philosophy can be particularly pertinent for the submission phase of your application process.
