Successful Grant Writing

Wednesday, November 1, 2023

  • Develop an understanding of the pre-work that leads to solid proposals
  • Become familiar with the process and core elements of a grant application
  • Learn what is most important to funders
  • Obtain practical tips for proposal writing – the DOs and DON’Ts
