Grant Writing Resources

The MSDE grants office has developed the following resources to guide you through the grant writing process.

Develop Your Idea

The prewriting process is the most critical period for your project.  Most ideas that fail to make it to the proposal stage, fail due to poor planning during this critical phase.  Taking the time to create a solid concept that enjoys the support of everyone involved will save you aggravation down the road.

Get That Grant!

As funds for special projects shrink, it becomes increasingly important to award grants to projects that demonstrate the greatest potential for success.  This handbook is intended to offer insight into how to write the best possible proposal.
