Etymology: [OE. grant, graunt, OF. graant, creant, promise, assurance. See Grant, v. t.]
Grants are non-repayable funds disbursed by one party, often a government department, corporation, foundation or trust, to a recipient, often a nonprofit entity, educational institution, business or an individual. In order to receive a grant, some form of "Grant Writing" often referred to as either a proposal or an application is usually required. Most grants are made to fund a specific project and require some level of compliance and reporting. The grant writing process involves an applicant submitting a proposal to a potential funder, either on the applicant's own initiative or in response to a Request for Proposal from the funder. Other grants can be given to individuals, such as victims of natural disasters or individuals who seek to open a small business. Sometimes grant makers require grant seekers to have some form of tax-exempt status, be a registered nonprofit organization or a local government. For example, tiered funding for a freeway are very large grants negotiated at government policy level. However smaller grants may be provided by a government agency. Project-related funding involving governments, business, communities, and individuals is often arranged by application either in writing or online.

Grant has been around us over the years and our training camps, because of relationships with myself, with of course Coach K, his coach in college, he’s very aware.

It’s all about relationships, and he’s very good at relationships so I feel very confident in passing this on to Grant Hill.
O divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console to be understood as to understand to be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive it is in pardoning that we are pardoned and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
