My ability to succeed as a doctoral student and doctoral candidate was associated with having an effective mentor, Professor Debra Wood. She is great in terms of her knowledge in the area of research and scholarly writing, clear and friendly communication, encouraging and guiding comments, constructive feedback, appreciation of her students’ efforts, and general academic support of her students. Dr. Debra was very influential in helping me develop my research, writing skills, and the foundations of my dissertation that I successfully completed. I am very thankful to Dr. Debra for her help and support.

I began working with Professor Zajaros this summer after I took the GRE and received an unsatisfactory score from studying on my own. I only had 5 weeks to prepare for retaking the test and Professor Z was able to quickly determine my strengths and weaknesses and come up with an effective, personalized plan to learn as much as possible in a short period of time. Professor Z did everything in his power to make sure that I was as ready as possible for the test and his encouraging words helped calm my nerves. Going into the test for the second time, I felt so much more prepared and confident. I ended up improving my score 9 points from a combined score of 293 to a 302! Professor Z is truly the most dedicated and kindhearted instructor that I’ve ever had. He went above and beyond to not only help me improve my GRE score but he also researched information on Occupational Therapy schools and is helping me write essays for admission into graduate school. My parents are so impressed with him that they plan on using him to help my little sister prepare for the ACT in a couple years. I cannot thank Professor Z enough for all that he has done for me!

Matt has been awesome for my student. His math skills have improved greatly and his writing has come from illegible to what can now be described as neat and readable. Matt has been very patient and deliberate with our son, and has taken the time to really explain things to Jake in a way he can understand. We would recommend this tutor to any parent looking for a tutor for their grammar school student! Matt is also reliable and prompt, and showed up when expected which was helpful with our very busy schedules.

I worked with Kim in a prior position for approximately 12 years in my roles of Sr. Project Manager and Director of IT, during which she was of great assistance in many of our IT projects. Our implementations and projects always required a communications plan for change management. Kim executed those plans flawlessly, but her value added was: 1) understanding the end-users audience and how to best communicate technology to them, 2) writing communications pieces that were concise and easy-to-understand, and 3) often bringing insights to our discussions that would uncover new aspects of the implementation (how to use new features, how to address the removal of old features, etc.). In short, her contributions enhanced the quality of each system implementation or upgrade project. In addition, Kim was my go-to expert whenever I needed to write specific communications, from memos to PowerPoint presentations, as she always provided the audience perspective that I needed.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do you hire a good grant writer?

Grants are available to nonprofit organizations, for-profit businesses that qualify for government grants, and individuals who qualify for foundation or government grants. Hiring a good grant writer can help you gain funding in your chosen field. According to the American Grant Writers’ Association, grant writers can help you research potential grant opportunities; write grant proposals, create budgets, and build budget narratives; review written materials before you submit; prepare a business plan; analyze your organization for grant competitive qualities; prepare research grants; help with 501(c)(3) applications for nonprofits; and more. Investing in the right grant writer could result in a financial win for your organization. Generally no licenses or certificates are required to be a good grant writer, but you may want to find a grant writer who has been certified (not just received a certificate of completion) by a reputable organization such as the Grant Professionals Certification Institute. Qualities to look for in a good grant writer include:

  • Proven success writing winning grants, especially in your target area.
  • Strong writing skills.
  • Strong math skills and demonstrated proficiency with budgeting.
  • Careful attention to detail — brilliant grant proposals may be rejected just for formatting errors, so you want someone who follows instructions explicitly.
  • Expertise in your target area.
  • Punctuality and good communication skills.

How much does a grant writer cost?

Hiring a grant writer can give you a competitive edge when applying for financial grants for your business or nonprofit organization, or as an individual. The cost to hire a grant writer can vary depending on their academic background, areas of expertise, previous grant writing success and years of experience. According to the Grant Professionals Association, grant writers should be paid hourly or by flat fee. It is unethical for a grant writer to accept a commission or percentage compensation of grant monies received. They can, however, be awarded bonuses in line with the hiring company’s prevailing practices. Here are some examples of average grant writing fees:

  • Hourly rate for grant writers with less experience or fewer grants awarded: $25-$35 per hour.
  • Hourly rate for grant writers with some degree of success: $35-$75 per hour.
  • Hourly rate for grant writers with proven success winning large grants: $75-$150 or more per hour.
  • For a smaller grant, the writer may charge a flat fee of $200-$500 for preparation and submission.  

Pricing may also vary based on the complexity of the grant application. A federal grant that requires pages of research, budgets and a business plan may take more than 30 hours to prepare. For a high-level grant writer who charges $100 per hour, this means $3,000 or more in grant writing fees.

Most grant writers will provide you with a total cost estimate before agreeing to the work. You may be required to pay a deposit up front, or the grant writer may work from a retainer. Often, seasoned grant writers pay for themselves in the long run by writing successful grants.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
