WISSEN’s services guide you on a path to success.
All services are performed by individuals who have earned at least an MA and who have higher education and/or grants experience. Our data show that clients who sign up for all services have the greatest degree of success. That said, clients may sign up for individual services, as outlined below.
Everyone wants to win — and WISSEN has 55% to 100% win rates with clients. But there are other reasons to engage in WISSEN services. Clients report that individuals feel mentored; employees learn how to make their programs stronger and more successful; and staff are better equipped to innovate their programs.
Sign up for single services or for all services, as a subscription. The benefit of a subscription model is that the price per grant is lower—and each win builds on the next.
Through a process of conversations, questions, and research, WISSEN learns about your projects and needs, and then mines our WISSEN grant databases to find opportunities that will fit your institution. We then match your projects to appropriate funders. Every grant narrative tells a story: what you want to do, why you want to do it, and how you will do it. But the content of the story matters as much as how you tell your story–and that involves knowing and understanding how to employ best practices for what we call “grant language.”
Our grant writing formula brings in wins.
Grant Consulting & Writing for Institutions
We write grant applications by following the tried and true WISSEN writing process. WISSEN:
- asks the right questions to expand the vision of the project;
- creates nuance in the details that support that vision;
- communicates and clarifies grant goals
- suggests appropriate language and project parameters;
- provides evidence-based research
- leverages and convenes internal and external partners for grant applications;
- writes the narrative; and
- works with experienced subject matter experts, reviewers, and developmental editors on final submissions.
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.
WISSEN coaches published scholars through the process by setting up achievable deadlines, asks the right questions to help define the project, and suggests convincing wording.
2. Developmental Editing
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 helps reveiwers get directly to the substance of your proposal.
4. 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.
5. Follow-up Reporting
Many times, projects require follow-up reporting. Give us the data, and we will write up the follow-up reports.
