Summary

Summary

Using real models and analyses of them, this guidebook examines business formats and teaches users how to construct written proposals for any field or situation. It surveys a variety of presentations but demonstrates the core aspects of proposal writing that recur in different disciplines and in documents of different sizes. Chapter topics cover basic types of proposal writing, proposals on campus, further lessons from proposals in the workplace, crafting the long proposal, and grant proposals. Numerous examples and suggestions can be found throughout the book. For anyone in the workplace confronted with the task of writing a proposal and who has had no training in doing so, and for those in volunteer organizations or in agencies promoting social development and seeking grant funding.
