This seminar provides concrete, practical guidance for preparing successful grant proposals. Participants learn to organize proposals, find and use pertinent facts and data and make your proposal stand out in a crowd. We discuss strategies to fully meet common grant application requirements, the importance of proposal appearance, how to get great letters of support and grant opportunity search strategies. You will learn to avoid common errors that keep many proposals from getting funded. Participants are welcome to come with actual proposal ideas. No experience necessary, but you should be comfortable expressing your ideas in writing.
“Your class was fantastic! I have told many, many people about it.”
