Join us for Grant Win Rates With Dr. Beverly Browning
For decades, I used the term win rate when referring to my clients’ grant award rates for the funding proposals and applications that I wrote for them (in part or total). The numbers used to calculate my annual and lifetime win rates were real and documented at an average rate of 90%. I kept copious annual tables of grant requests written versus grants requests won including the names of clients, the amount of the grant awards, and the awarding funders. However, in the past few years, there has been a rumbling among my grants industry colleagues about what truly constitutes a win rate and the urgency to stop using this term.
In this presentation, I will discuss the reason the term win rate was used with potential clients and employers. I’ll also discuss the grant industry’s viewpoint on using the term win rate. Most importantly, I’ll provide robust discussion on the bigger picture that encompasses our hard work behind the scenes and why the term win rate does not reflect or represent our professional dossier in the grants industry.
