Grant Writing, Management Career Outlook
The number of organizations that qualify for grant funds has risen sharply over the last three decades. Nearly 90,000 trusts, foundations, government agencies, and other organizations provide more than $40 billion annually in awarded grants in the United States, and more than $240 billion is contributed worldwide by individuals, bequests, foundations, and corporations (The Foundation Center, 2008). It is no surprise then, that the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics shows that the employment of grant writers is expected to grow by 16% between 2010 and 2020. For those professionals already employed in these positions, advancement opportunities are more likely with experience and completion of a master’s degree in the field.
According to Indeed.com, the average pay scale for a Grant Writer is $40,000-$80,000. Read our article, Why Get a Master’s in Grant Writing, to learn more.
