This 8-session ZOOM classroom based course is a deep dive into the nuts and bolts of grant-writing. Participants will learn how to organize proposals, find and use pertinent facts and data, and make your proposal stand out in a crowd. We will discuss strategies to fully meet grant application requirements, develop clear outcomes, prepare budgets, search for relevant grant opportunities and more. You will learn to avoid common errors that keep many proposals from getting funded. Participants are urged to come with actual proposal ideas; students will work in small groups to complete a “proposal concept paper” – a draft grant proposal. Please note that students registering for this course are expected to possess strong writing skills.
