The Grant Writing Workshop presents
Professional Grant Proposal Writing Workshop
May 13-14, 2010
8:00 AM to 5:00 PM
San Francisco, California
The Professional Grant Proposal Writing Workshop is a hands-on, intensive session that leads participants through the entire grant proposal and funding research processes. Through an intense two day workshop, participants will receive an overview of program planning basics along with advanced writing techniques to develop your winning proposal. This results-based workshop allows each student to walk out with a thorough proposal outline, completed worksheets necessary for proposal submission, and a starting collection of publications and resources to build your development library. This course is designed to provide your organization with the competitive advantage necessary in our modern grants award environment.
The Professional Grant Proposal Writing Workshop will cover the following during the two day workshop:
(1) Fundamentals of Program Planning
This session will teach professional program development essentials and program evaluation. While most grantsmanship "workshops" treat program development and evaluation as separate from the writing of a proposal, this class will teach students the relationship between overall program planning and proposal writing.
(2) Strategic Funding Research
At its foundation, this session will address the basics of foundation, corporation, and government grant research. However, this course will emphasize a strategic funding research approach that encourages writers to see research not as something they do before they write a proposal, but as an integrated part of the grant seeking process. Students will be exposed to online and database research tools, as well as publications and directories that contain information about foundation, corporation, and government grant opportunities. Focusing on funding sources and basic social science research, this course teaches students how to use research as part of a strategic grant acquisition effort.
(3) Professional Proposal Writing
Designed to obtain tangible results, this session will make each student an overall proposal writing specialist. In addition to teaching the basic components of a grant proposal, successful approaches, and the do's and don'ts of grant writing, this session is infused with expert principles that will lead to a mastery of the process. Strategy resides at the forefront of this session's intent to illustrate grant writing as an integrated, multidimensional, and dynamic endeavor. Each student will learn to stop writing the grant and to start writing the story. Ultimately, this session will conclude with a completed proposal outline.
Tuition for this two day workshop is $399.00.
