Be persuasive and Prepared for Success

Do you wish you knew exactly what grant reviewers were looking for? Although the grant application process varies, there are some important common elements which can give you an edge. This online workshop will provide you with insights into persuasive and effective grant writing through a mock-interview process. This program is a great resource for all grant writers, whether you are writing your first grant or have years of experience. To be best prepared for this workshop, we recommend taking Beginning Grant Writing prior to this course to learn current best practices. Both Beginning Grant Writing and Advance Grant Writing are offered in order to allow for easier completion of both programs in the series. Plus, by taking both workshops you will earn the Professional Grant Writing Certificate.

You will learn:

  • A three-step RFP Analysis Process to identify sponsor hot buttons
  • To integrate persuasive themes into every section of your response
  • How to create an opening summary that captures attention and sets you apart
  • Identify critical elements of the grant review process
  • How to interpret reviewers’ comments
  • To anticipate and preempt reviewer objections as you write your proposal
  • Build the skills to successfully find and gain grant funding
