Research Associates (RA) specializes in writing large, federal education and human service grants for school districts and large non-profits throughout the southeast.

If you are looking for a grant writer or grant writing firm, but are outside of our geographic area, field of expertise, or target population, please read the article below on how to select a grant writer.
Since 1985, RA has trained over 25,000 individuals using our 13-step logical grant writing model. This approach, while very successful for RA, is one of many strategies that practitioners may use to find and apply for grants. We offer no guarantee that use of our grants development model will result in obtaining grant funds. Individuals who have attended RA classes, completed the course work, and passed a knowledge test received a certificate in grant writing. RA does not guarantee the competency of individuals who have taken our courses, the quality of their work, or success potential since every individual brings different experience, skills, intelligence, and education to the task. We recommend carefully checking references, asking for writing samples, and requesting a list of funded grants the professional wrote before contracting with a potential consultant.
