This book has been updated and revised to help beginning students and grantwriters write an effective proposal, which increases their chances of success. The Third Edition of Proposal Writing: Effective Grantsmanship is not an exhaustive text on proposal writing; its purpose is to provide a solid foundation upon which to add years of experience to fine-tune grant writing skills. Authors Soraya M. Coley and Cynthia A. Scheinberg de-mystify the grant writing process and provide a guide to writing that is as jargon-free and simple to use as possible. New to the Third Edition Provides greater coherence and logic in the presentation of the chapters : A new organization around The Fundamentals of Proposal Writing; The Three Lens of Proposal Conceptualization; and Writing the Proposal. Includes new topics : New chapters cover Using Technology in Proposal Development and Understanding the Agency and Funding Environment. Offers an accompanying Web site : A student study site helps readers create their own proposals and further develop and practice concepts in the book. Intended Audience This is an excellent guide for beginning grant writers as well as graduate courses such as Grantwriting and Fundraising for Social Work, Social Work Program Planning, and Social Work Administration in the department of social work.
