The Science & Art of Grant-Writing
Feb 22 all-day
The Science & Art of Grant-Writing @ Rutland | Vermont | United States

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.

Advanced Grant-Writing: Tackling the Tough Topics

Goals & Objectives; Outcomes & Evaluation; Building Budgets

This workshop is designed for those who have at least some proposal writing experience or have taken “The Science & Art of Grant-Writing.” We cover the “sticky issues” that are most challenging: translating project ideas into clear, measurable goals and objectives; determining outcomes to demonstrate you’ve attained project goals; designing effective, easy-to-implement evaluation strategies; and building realistic budgets (including the often-vexing match requirement). You may bring in a draft to share; we will use some examples from proposals-in-process.
