This session will provide a balance of tools, practice of skills and significant writing opportunities to deepen participants’ knowledge of and skills in grantwriting.

This intermediate-level training is also a hands-on writing clinic, in which registrants will receive feedback from other participants about specific sections of one of their grant proposals as well as have an opportunity to create and/or improve some usable grant content for their organizations. This session is focused on writing.

Learning Objectives

  • Develop grant content for your organization
  • Analyze actual grant applications, and recognize successful and unsuccessful strategies
  • Receive peer feedback on submitted grant applications and on the content written in the workshop
