Proposal writing is becoming more competitive than ever. If you are going to invest the amount of time it will take to write a winning proposal, you will want to do the best you can.

  • Before you start writing any proposal, read and follow the guidelines clearly.
  • Write a clear and good title that provides a key idea of your project. Avoid "cute" titles or too many words that are not necessary.

  • State the problem and show that the project is definitely needed and should be funded.
  • Include why your organization is the best suited to conduct this project.
  • Describe measurable objectives along with a doable timeline for each activity.
