Write A Grant

One of the most misunderstood and mysterious processes in the field of education is the writing of grants. Most educators are not taught anything about grant writing while in college, and there are precious few ways to learn grant writing techniques at the national, state, and district level. The reason why no one is going out of their way to teach you how to write grants is one WANTS you to know! The fewer people that know how to write grants...the fewer the districts that can compete for the money. The result of this scarcity of knowledge is that rich districts with large budgets can use their resources to get grant writing teams trained...while small districts remain in the dark. Millions of dollars in grant monies are snapped up by these large districts with their grant writing specialists. Small districts, on the other hand, usually do not have the personnel, time, energy, or knowledge to compete for this money.

Those days are over, thanks to! Dr. Douglas Brooks has agreed to share the secrets of successful grant writing with all of us for FREE! Yes, I said free. Dr. Brooks' grant writing program, called "Grant Success", gives you all the knowledge you need to compete for the millions of dollars available for districts to win. As a bonus, Dr. Brooks has agreed to publish his latest grant, one that he wrote in November of 2009 with a district in Indiana. The grant was successful to the tune of $183,000! At, we do not give you theories about how you may write a successful grant, we make available to you an ACTUAL grant that was successful so that you may read it and learn how to write a successful grant yourself.

Does your district need money? Does your district need expensive educational technology to upgrade the educational experiences of your students? Would your status as an administrator in the district be enhanced if you wrote a grant that won your district $183,000 or more? You and I both know that the answers to all three of these questions is "yes". You really have no excuse to let other districts rake in the dough while your district sits on the sidelines.

As of this writing, the federal government's "Race to the Top" program is structured such that state governments compete for the $4 Billion (with a "B") available. The Governor of each state is in charge of writing the grant proposal to submit to the federal government. There are whispers that the program will receive an additional $1.4 Billion more in funding, and that individual school districts would have the opportunity to write grants to claim a chunk of the money. Wouldn't it be great if you had the knowledge to win some of that money for your district?

You CAN have the knowledge! Just go to and click on the "Grant Writing Made Easy" link. There you will find several articles written by Dr. Brooks about writing grants, as well as the actual grant he wrote for the Indiana district that won $183,000. Go there today, and become the "Grant Writing Guru" for your district!
