iGrantWriters, a company that connects organizations with a network of trusted top-rated grant writers, is holding an introductory class in Pasadena that will give local residents a basic understanding of grant writing and maybe set you off on a grant writing career.
Many people right now are laid off from their jobs, and this might be a great opportunity to open a new window to increase your chances of employment.
If you’ve ever wanted to write a grant but wasn’t sure what to do first, you can sign up now for the free introductory grant writing training, a live-streamed hour-long webinar, and if you like the prospect, you will have the option to purchase the comprehensive course – an online grant training guided by a professional grant writer. The course can be delivered within 24 hours.
Typically, grant writers are professionals who are pursuing their chosen careers and have taken on grant writing as a sideline. Later on, after experiencing working with a variety of client organizations that successfully obtain grants because of their proposals, they become full-time grant writers who enjoy the ease of staying home, or working from anywhere they are, while earning a full-time income.
ScienceMag.org writes about Stephan Segler, a former chemist who now works as a grant proposal writer, combining his scientific training, working style, and the yearning to travel the world, and helping startups win funding to bring their innovations to market readiness.
Segler works remotely, which gives him the freedom to set up his home office wherever he wants.
In the ScienceMag.org article, he speaks about the skills that may be helpful for anyone desiring to become a professional grant writer.
“Above all, you should like writing and creating strong narratives,” Segler says. “Making graphs and conceptual images is also important. Having a broad interest and knowledge base is helpful so that you can immediately connect with a new customer. You should be capable and flexible enough to jump from a cryptocurrency to a health technology project, for example.”
In the free webinar, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. any day of your choice, you will learn about the best ways to start a grant-writing journey and to quickly become competent in winning grant money. You will also discover why nonprofits and government agencies need and hire grant writers to bring more money into their organizations.
