Let’s start off with a definition.
According to Wikipedia, “Grant writing is the practice of completing an application process for a federal grant provided by an institution such as a government department, corporation, foundation or trust.”
Usually, grant writers help organizations in the non-profit sector achieve funds for the groups they select. They identify government policies and submit proposals for such grants.
Of course, they must become familiar with the organization’s mission and activity. Key qualifications are excellent research and writing skills. One must be good at networking and knowledgeable about non-profit management.
