Social media is changing the funding landscape. With the ability to reach out to grant makers, connect with fellow grant writers, and share your own thoughts and ideas, social media can take your grant-writing to a whole new level.
In 2015, CDW-G, with eSchool News, launched the Collaboration Nation awards program to highlight the nation’s finest examples of collaboration and successful educational technology projects. The inaugural $50,000 grand prize winner was Napa County Office of Education for its dedication to cross-department collaboration and innovative use of technology to enhance student learning.
When searching for funding, many people start their research with well-known national foundations. While national foundations typically have abundant resources and grants to distribute, they are also inundated with a large number of grant proposals, which makes it difficult for a proposal to compete.
