This workshop will walk participants through what a grant writing process can look like. We’ll talk about possible sources of funding, how peer jury processes work, timelines, making budgets, writing tips, and support materials. We will look closely at a successful grant application as an example. The workshop will feature some hands-on activities and time for questions. Whether you’ve never written a grant before or you’ve written a few and are looking for tips, you’re welcome to join. If you like making notes, you can bring pencil and paper or a laptop. Notes will also be shared digitally with participants afterwards.
