There's more to grant writing than just "writing." A lot more.

covers the basics of foundation grant research and grant writing. You'll learn how to find your best prospects and write your own grant proposals.
This workshop combines lecture, group discussion, and hands-on activities to reinforce course material.
The focus of this workshop is foundation grants.
