Format: Paperback
"101 Tips for Aspiring Grant Writers" is written in short, easy to absorb chapters that make it easier to squeeze into a busy schedule like mine! Veronica Robbins has clearly established a wealth of expertise based on many years of experience and success as a professional grant writer and, like a true master (or in this case, goddess), she is able to provide readers with many thoughtful "tips" without ever being condescending or overwhelming. Many of the chapters on what might be considered dry topics are quite literary in the hands of such a skillful writer!

I like the practical advice, chapters that follow the sequence of a typical grant proposal, space to write my notes, and the attitude of the book. It all works well together to support the process of grant writing - for the novice, the experienced, and those in between. If the reader puts even a few of these tips into practice, a "good" grant application just might turn into a "great" one. I highly recommend this book.

"101 Tips for Aspiring Grant Writers" provides practical advice and helpful tips for both individuals who are starting their careers as grant writers as well as a refresher course for seasoned grant writers. The book is divided into chapters on grant writing basics, building a case for your program, goals and objectives, program design, budgeting and more. Each chapter is filled with nice "bite-sized" tips to help make the grant writing process smoother. The author does a great job of translating what is often dry, difficult to understand information into an easy to read and engaging format.

I especially recommend the book for those working with government and large foundation grants. The author is clearly an expert regarding these grants and her tips will save you many headaches! While the book is geared toward aspiring grant writers, I recommended it for intermediate and advanced grant writers as well. I have worked in the field for 15+ years and found it to be a very helpful resource that I have added to my reference shelf. I would have loved to have this book when I was first starting out and highly recommend it.

"101 Tips for Aspiring Grant Writers" is certainly a must-have resource for anyone intending to write a grant, from first-timers to experienced grant writers, both at government and private level. The information is well ordered, lucid, and never dry. The material is clear, beautifully written, and structured in such a way as to take the grant writer through a typical application step by step. I have written several grants and only wished this book had been available back then.

Ms Robbins, professional grant writer and the Director/CEO of Creative Resources & Research, is very encouraging throughout and gives concrete reasons as to why a first-timer can be successful even in the case of a hotly contested grant. Make no mistake, an experienced grant writer will find this book full of indispensable and valuable information. A busy grant writer will not have to wade through filler as everything in the book is pertinent and to the point.

I most certainly will never apply for another grant without referring minutely to "101 Tips for Aspiring Grant Writers." I was not surprised to find out that Ms Robbins' funding rate in some categories is 100%.

Grant writing can be daunting but Veronica Robbins' tips and insider secrets make the whole process easy, even enjoyable. Ms Robbins truly is a grant goddess! No grant writer can afford to be without this essential resource.
