Grant Skills Workshop
It takes more than "grant writing" to win grants! The Grant Skills Workshop is an interactive workshop that gives you an overview of the entire grant process, with in-depth emphasis on key areas where even experienced grant professionals often misstep. Participants will learn how to navigate the world of grant procurement and polish key sections of successful proposals to bring projects to the top of the submission pile.
The sessions will help you establish a strategic plan for your grant writing process, including:
- Needs statement
- Mission, goals, and objectives
- Key personnel
All sessions engage the attendees in interactive exercises, writing, lectures and discussions so that all participants will leave the class understanding how to research, write and develop their specific project. This hands-on workshop includes practical exercises that will take you step-by-step through the stages of planning programs, locating funding sources and grant writing proposals.
