In grad school, I thought that writing grants was essential only in an academic career. Having read many job announcements since graduation, I’ve realized that the ability to write fundable grant applications is a skill coveted not just in academics, but also in non-profit organizations, professional associations, and even government agencies.

Therefore, it seems to me that no matter what career path I decided to pursue in the future, the exercise of grant writing may prove to be very useful.
