Our biggest tips for grant writing

  • Clearly describe the project and expected outcomes
  • Demonstrate strategic links to wider strategies or policy
  • Include accurate and up to date data about the problem you are hoping to solve
  • Demonstrate wider community support for the project and partneships with other organisations
  • Have a well thought out budget

Be Prepared

Understand what you or your organisation can provide and what it is you are after before applying for a grant. It is important to have a clear objective in place pre-emptive to applying for a grant in order to ensure that your application is clear, concise, and relevant to the grant.


It’s important that you use the terminology provided in the EOI or grant. The assessment panel likes hearing its own words and way of speaking. In addition, if you are presenting a complex business model with patents etc, simple terminology or infographics to describe these complex models are important.


If they allow 2500 words, write 2,500 words. Detail is important. It demonstrates you have an understanding of your product or service and a clear plan for the future. For grants such as the acceleration commercialisation grant, it’s important to address the requirements carefully and ensure that you understand the grant and its criteria. Keep note that you must remain objective-focused, meaning you must use precise language and sentence structure that is relevant for the grant application.

Clear budgets

Most grants will ask you for an estimate of the money you require and a budget. You must have the capacity to not only outline your budget needs and why, but also any other expenses you think you may incur. It is important to note your costs down and plan accordingly to avoid going over budget and incurring unnecessary expenses.

What is a grant?

A grant is an amount of money provided to an institution or individual to address a problem or need in a community. For this reason, Grants are focused heavily on things that can benefit and add value to the community in some form or another. It is also this reason why some individual or organisations have issues or questions when it comes to granting writing. Understandable, grant writing involves the ability to address the problem or need that the grant is designed for. As simple as that sounds there are some intricacies to help maximise your chances at writing a successful grant proposal.
