Are you curious about grants? Does your school or community-based organization need additional funding for specific projects? Could you use some help getting started? If so, this workshop is for you!
The world of grants can often be complex and confusing. Participants will engage in a “crash course” to help them understand and practice the foundational skills needed to explore the pre-award phase of the grant life cycle. The presenters have over 30 years of experience as grant professionals and secured over $100 million in grant funding for their organization in 2021-22.
This workshop will include a combination of lecture, storytelling, and experiential exercises. We highly encourage you to bring your laptop or tablet to participate in the hands-on activities.
