InfoReady Corp. sponsored a webinar with Dr. Robert Porter, Director of Research Development at the University of Tennessee on April 11, 2012 titled, “Crafting a Sales Pitch for Your Grant Proposal.”
“One of the more daunting challenges facing new grant writers is the need to adopt a different rhetorical style. Instead of the expository mode that characterizes most academic writing, a strong grant proposal has to be persuasive from the outset, i.e., it must sell the fundamental idea to a body of grant reviewers, who quickly adopt a mental “thumbs up/thumbs down” attitude toward the document they are reading. This webinar described a three paragraph template for a sales pitch that will jump start the first page of the grant proposal.”
