About Holly

Hi! Thanks so much for stopping by :)

I'm Holly Rustick, founder of Grant Writing & Funding, and I coach freelance grant writers through business design and skill mastery so they can 10x their results--all from the comfort of their own home!

Not to toot my own horn (although this is a bio, so a bit of shameless bragging is totally needed, wink-wink), but I have been writing grants for 15 years immersing myself in the grant world where I have been able to secure millions of dollars for nonprofits around the world! 

I am also an Amazon bestselling author, podcast host of Grant Writing & Funding and new YouTuber of the Grant Writing & Funding Channel

I've been on both sides of the grant writing coin – writing them and winning grants as well as managing and reviewing them on behalf of numerous organizations. I have an extensive data base on grant writing and funding-related online courses, offer workshops, and provide coaching for people who want to transition into freelance grant writing to earn a successful income.

On the nerdy side, I hold a Master’s in International Political Economy and a Bachelor’s in Political Science. I am also a professor at the University of Guam, President-Elect of the Guam Women's Chamber of Commerce, editor of the Storyboard journal, and serve on the PTA at my daughter's school (probably the most important role, lol).
