In this hands-on workshop, you will learn the main parts of a grant proposal.  You will write several of those parts of the proposal during the class and get feedback on them from experts and peers. You’ll also learn how to find potential funders for your project, and you’ll be shown what those funders look for in a proposal and what they don’t like to see.

  • Examine the essential parts of any proposal and how to create them
