grant proposals are here to stay. They
are frustrating, exasperating and daunting.
Still, we often must present our case for support in 2,000 characters (-
350 words or less). Writing tight or to
the point while getting the attention of the grant reviewer has never been more
crucial. Although brevity is key, grant
makers still want engaging narratives that state the issue or problem
succinctly while providing evidence that your organization will achieve the
proposed outcomes. Knowing what to say
and how to say it in a short grant application is the focus of this
session. The techniques discussed will
help you craft successful paper and paperless proposal narratives.
- Learn techniques to present their case in as
few words as possible.
- Identify key elements that will grab grant
- Edit proposals for strong content.
