Looking For Promising Remote Freelance Grant Writing Jobs

One of the greatest benefits of freelance writing is that you can do it anywhere. Whether you live in a small town in the middle of nowhere where there aren’t many jobs, you want to work from home, or you’re trying to make some money while driving across the country, you can make a living writing. All you need is a periodic internet connection and a computer. Grant writing is a great opportunity for remote work, because there is always demand for it, and many organizations and businesses don’t care if you’re located in the same place as them. If you’re interested in pursuing a freelance grant writing career, or just doing it here and there, you’ll need to learn how to find jobs and successfully be hired for them.

Follow this easy advice on how to look for promising remote grant writing jobs:

  • Find a good website to work from
  • There are several great freelance writing websites that can help you find jobs, connect with clients, manage your workflow, and even get paid through. Using a website will help you find more jobs from all around the world that are okay with remote grant writers. They may also guarantee your payment, which can help alleviate worries of getting scammed when you’re working with a client online. Find one that has a section that is dedicated specifically to grant writing.

  • Put together a good portfolio and success statistics
  • In addition to wanting to see samples of your work in your portfolio, many clients will also want to know your success statistics. So keep track of how many grants you write, what kinds of sources they are for—foundations, state, or federal—and then follow up to see how many were funded and for what amounts. You can present these statistics either as the dollars you’ve raised for clients or as the percentage of proposals you’ve had successfully funded.

  • Include suggestions of where to look for grants in your proposal
  • This is a great way to show clients you know what you’re talking about, and that you’re taking their project seriously. Many times a quick 10 minute internet search will give you a few ideas.

  • Be professional and prompt to reply with clients
  • Keep in mind that your client is probably a bit nervous about working with a remote grant writer, because they have no idea what to expect.
