The strategic grant writing development workshop is designed to teach the basics of grant writing for individuals seeking to enhance their grant writing abilities. It provides a comprehensive overview of effective grant development techniques, including: finding best fit funding sources, creating innovative programs, and planning for funding sustainability.

Attendees of the Strategic Grant Writing Development will learn the following:

1) Strategic Grant Research – Through interactive exercises, discussions, applicable research assignments and individual consultations, you will learn how to strategically identify appropriate funding agencies. This course will expose you to database applications, online research tools, as well as traditional publications that contain information about multiple grant opportunities.

2) Strategic Program Planning – Planning a winning proposal requires developing ideas that are clear, significant and compelling.

Effectively strategizing your proposal idea is what this workshop will emphasize.

3) Strategic Proposal Writing – Preparing a successful written proposal requires an organized, systematic approach to effectively convey your story. It demands disciplined strategies to align your content to what a grant maker is looking for. This workshop provides a step-by-step writing process to deal with any and all application requirements.

4) Strategic Proposal Submittal Process – Tip and strategies to ensure that you follow the proper protocol and best practices on grant proposal submittals. Learn the best tips and tricks to increase your chances of getting your grant successfully approved.
