Newest AWAI Member Case Study: Toni Rockis

In virtually every community across the nation, there are schools that could do more – if only they had the funds.

One Illinois freelance writer has stepped up to help schools grab a piece of the estimated $44 billion in available grants. Toni Rockis, a former educator, writes grant proposals and teaches other writers, teachers, and parents how to create winning proposals.

“Grant writing allows me to help students in a different way – without being in the classroom,” Rockis said.

Learn more about how this former educator turned grant writer has landed more than $68 million in grants for schools and professional organizations.

  1. I have just read "Grant Writing" twice and am very excited and enthusiastic about your program. Very much what I'm looking for as a niche for myself. I have just retired from my CPA firm and I feel this is the path for me to follow!

    Please get back to me if you can give me advice!!

    Thanks...
