Frequently Asked Questions about Grant Writing

How long does it take to write a grant?

The timeline depends on the complexity of the application, scope of work, etc. Generally, it takes between 4-12 weeks.


Can I pay the grant writer from awarded money/contingency?

No. It is no longer considered an ethical use of funds to pay the grant writer from awarded money, nor is it allowed by funders. It's best practice to agree and pay a fixed rate at the beginning of the project.

Do you guarantee I'll be awarded the grant?

No, funding is never a guarantee. Even if everything aligns with the heavens, the funder makes the final decision on who is and is not awarded a grant. 


How long will it take to receive awarded funds?

It can take months to receive awarded funds.
