1. KISS - Keep It Simple, Stupid (hard for educators to do!)

2. Read and reread the RFP guidelines - then reread them again!

3. It's not the money you really want, but what the money will do for your students.

4. Think of the grantor as your customer - and give the customer what he wants!

5. A grant is like a contract - where "due consideration passes between the parties."

6. Teach the student first - subject matter second.

7. Project goals must flow from the program mission, from which flows the objectives and measurable outcomes - then, any one can figure out staffing and budgets! 8. You don't have to be an accountant or lawyer to know if the proposal is cost effective and "can do" what it said it would do!

9. In your proposal - and certainly in your grant "needs statement" - "make the reader want to cry for you!"

10. If you can win one out of ten grants, chances are you could get a job with any major school or university!
