    What does 'grant' mean in this sentence:

    'It was during the PhD program that I got my first experience doing many of the things that I now offer as services through my business, including grant writing and editing, writing articles, and mentoring. '
    Thanks!

    Re: What does 'grant' mean in this sentence:

    It means an application for financial support. In academia, both the application and the agreement to provide support are called "grants".

    I would have written grant-writing and -editing​ because the two activities are grant-writing and grant-editing.
    I am not a teacher.

    Re: What does 'grant' mean in this sentence:

    It seems that one of the specialties they are doing is writing and editing texts for people applying for grants, that is money given to them by an organisation for a special purpose, like education or projects.
