Grant Writing, Non-Profits and Philanthropy: Home


Welcome to the research guide to Grant Writing, Non-Profits and Philanthropy.  This guide will provide a good starting point for general research on grant writing for proposals, submission guidelines, and statistical resources that may be required on grant applications.   This Guide will also list general resources available from private and public entities.  In some cases resources or links provided may only be accessible to those affiliated with the University of Utah.

For assistance in the area grant research or if you are interested in having a grant writing module taught in your course at the University of Utah please contact  Peter Kraus, at the J. Willard Marriott Library at the University of Utah ;

University Writing Center Provides Grant Writing Assistance

Grant Writing assistance is also available for faculty at the University of Utah’s Writing Center  (UWC) located on Level 2 of the J. Willard Marriott Library. The UWC and the Vice President for Research are proud to offer convenient grant and proposal writing assistance as well as editing for faculty in all disciplines and at all stages of drafting, writing, and research. Because of their backgrounds in publishing and copy editing, UWC Writing Fellows provide unique resources for faculty looking to bolster a proposal or publication or simply strengthen a sentence or two.

This service is offered on a first-come, first-served basis, so please plan ahead, especially near common grant and publication deadlines. The UWC requests that faculty email with specific requests. Please understand that more detailed projects may not be immediately accommodated, should the Writing Fellows already be booked with other faculty members.
