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.
