In this one day crash course participants will learn: where to search for grants, how to choose a grant to apply for, how to write a compelling proposal, create a budget and select images that will make your proposal stand out. Bernard will tackle these must-know grant topics with interactive exercises, humor and dark chocolate. Participants will actually begin the grant writing process and get same day feedback.
10/29 Saturday 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
