Grant Writing 102
October 29 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm ET
Please note: this is an in-person event and spots are limited.
Grant writing involves advanced planning and preparation. The workshop will review grant writing principles followed by the participants organizing a proposal, incorporating research in the grant request. Participants will work in groups to write a proposal outline (organization background, proposed project, project evaluation, project budget and budget justification).
It is recommended that registrants have a grant idea in mind that they would like to submit in the future. Participants and instructor will review the completed projects and offer feedback on all submissions.
