The Grantwriter's Internet Companion
A Resource for Educators and Others Seeking Grants and Funding

December 2000 | 128 pages | Corwin
Administrators and central office personnel are not the only educators writing grants. Classroom teachers are finding that grants can provide an excellent source of funding for special classroom projects, school-wide programmes, and even personal growth opportunities. This book is designed to assist educators and others interested in grant writing in using the Internet as a resource to help locate funding sources and other sites that may prove useful when seeking funding.

After reading Chapter II's preliminary information on search engines, prospective grant writers can learn about U.S. as well as state Departments of Education, foundations and educational organizations and associations, and more. The author also covers mailing lists, discussion groups, and the most efficient ways to use e-mail addresses.
