NISER Grant-E-Nomics Workshops
Designed for both novice and experienced grant seekers, this workshop covers the vital components of developing a proposal, searching for suitable grants, negotiating the necessary arrangements and writing a winning application.
During the workshop you will uncover potential funding sources and develop a proposal or work with a fellow participant to develop one. You will leave this workshop having gained new skills and the ability to apply those skills to the grant needs of your organization.
The workshop combines both instruction and practical exercises to take you step-by-step through the stages of a specific grant proposal. In the first part of the workshop you will learn about developing an appropriate ‘mind set’ to work on your grants and to identify the ‘critical’ grant and proposal components. You will also evaluate sample grant applications to demonstrate some common pitfalls and examples of success.
In the second part of the workshop you will identify a specific funding source for your projects – for example, federal, state or local government, philanthropic or corporate. Then, you will prepare a draft proposal and present your proposal for review and receive feedback from the trainer and your fellow participants.
Note: As an additional benefit, Associate Membership to NISER and 24 hour email support for your grant questions is included in your tuition. Upon completion of training, you will receive a one-year associate membership of NISER, which includes a complimentary grant proposal/application review, access to our comprehensive funding database, discounts on services such as workshops and consulting. In addition, you may receive funding tips and information of upcoming grant opportunities.
