- Pursuing grants is not rocket science (no offense to our
non-astrophysicist friends) but it does require a fair amount of
organization and a healthy dose of determination. It should be a
deliberate and coordinated effort that you and your organization make, so
be sure that you are ready before you spend the time and resources needed
to identify and submit grant proposals. Grantseeker's
Cafe provided news, information, advice, tutorials and
networking for anyone seeking a grant.
