Grant Writing & Consulting For Institutions
We write grant applications by following the tried and true WISSEN writing process.
During the writing process, WISSEN asks the right questions to expand the vision of the project, creates nuance in the details that support that vision, and writes the actual narrative. WISSEN communicates and clarifies grant goals, suggests appropriate language and project parameters, and helps provide evidence-based research. We leverage and convene internal and external partners for grant applications, sending RFQs, surveys, and other documents to get the information you need.WISSEN works with experienced developmental editors on final submissions.
Based on the report generated from the organizational consulting phase, we:
— identify fundable grant projects at your institution by taking into account both what you want and what funders are looking for;
— match projects to funders by using our extensive database and by reaching out to program officers; and
— facilitate communication with program officers by demonstrating how to approach program officers, how to pitch ideas, and how to follow up.
Grant Writing for Individual Faculty Members and Researchers:
Sometimes a client (whether an individual faculty member or an institution) just wants help with a single application. We provide coaching and developmental editing — as well as grant writing — for individuals. Together, we will explore your topic, expand its vision and impact, and drill down into the details to make your work a success.
In addition, we offer:
Perhaps you are a scholar or administrator who really likes the idea of writing, but you are not sure how to go about addressing all of the project guidelines. WISSEN coaches published scholars through the process by setting up achievable deadlines, asks the right questions that will help you define your project, and suggests convincing wording.
Grant Developmental Editing
Sometimes a client would like to write the text, and have a scholar in their field read the text, comment on it, and suggest changes. A developmental edit involves suggesting the order of ideas, changing syntax, asking questions, and providing alternative wording. This service works best for published scholars.
Even the greatest of writers needs an editor! Whether WISSEN or the client writes the text, WISSEN provides professional copy-editing services. A text free of errors is a must—clear writing allows your audience to get directly to the substance of your proposal.
Grant Budgets and Budget Justifications
Budgets can be confusing. Tell us your needs and your numbers and we will give you feedback so as to create strong and convincing budgets and budget narratives.
Grant Follow-up Reporting
Many times, projects require follow-up reporting. Give us the data, and we will write up the follow-up reports.
