Professional Grant Development

See Professional Grant Development Workshops

This is a comprehensive workshop that covers the diversity of donors, key search engines, and writing one's individual grant or idea in what ultimately will constitute a winning grant.

Participants will understand how to navigate the world of grant procurement, focus on the key sections of successful proposals and demonstrate that their projects merit the excellence and innovation that bring them to the top of other submissions. They will also understand the diversity of the funding community and how to respond to various guidelines.

The sessions will cover the overall strategic plan of grant-writing, including, but not limited to, a needs statement, mission, goals, objectives, activities, evaluation, key personnel and budgets. All sessions engage the attendees in interactive exercises, writing, lectures and discussions so that all participants will leave the class understanding how to research, write and develop their specific project.

This in-depth three-day workshop targets:

  • Beginners seeking to acquire the techniques to research and draft grant-winning proposals from various agencies.
  • Those aiming to polish and improve current grant-writing skills

  • Comprehend the diversity of the grant funding community

  • Integrate each component of the grant into the final product
