Description

Preparing a competitive grant proposal requires good research, careful preparation, and smooth writing. No matter what field you are in, the hunt to secure any type of grant funding has become highly competitive. Funders expect quality outcomes and quantifiable impacts in return for their financial support. This online course will help you make your submission the best it can be!

Specific topics will include:

  • Grant basics - Understanding how the funding universe works;
  • Developing strategies for securing an appropriate commitment before submitting a proposal;
  • Understanding the criteria used by funders to determine whether your grant proposal gets reviewed or rejected;
  • Refining your funding strategies and requests to better align with the goals of funders;
  • Discovering the tools available to organize proposal content;
  • Grant writing/budgeting techniques;
  • Tips for communicating with prospective sponsors; and
  • Adding the "finishing touches" that will give your submission an edge and put you on the road to funding.

This class is a great place to start for anyone thinking of applying for any type of grant funding! Learn what you need to know before you start!
