After reading the information on how to get educational grants, I approached my children’s private school admissions officer and spoke to him. Please keep in mind that for two years we had to pay the full tuition, and that was hard. I used the “Steps of the Grant Proposal Process Flow Chart” on pages 4-5 (of the Grant Funding course material) and submitted a formal grant proposal package to the school. I believe that by providing them with such a strong case of why our grants were needed, my preparation blew him away, and helped us receive grant money. I used the same process for the next two years of private school, and I was successful in receiving grants.
