Online grant applications are here to stay! They are frustrating, exasperating, and daunting. Still, how do you convey your case for support when your need statement and project description sections can only be 2,000 characters or roughly 350 words in length?
Although brevity is key, grantmakers still want engaging narratives that state the issue succinctly while providing evidence that your organization will achieve the proposed outcomes. Knowing what to say and how to say it in a short grant application is the focus of this session.
Learn how to position your case for support using deductive writing techniques that help you get to your point quicker. The methods discussed will help you design successful paper and paperless proposal narratives including those to the different levels of government as well as foundations and corporations.
The topics covered in this webinar are as follows:
- Identify key elements that will grab the attention of grant reviewers
- Use simple, direct language to make your point
- Eliminate passive voice from your narratives
- Edit your proposals for strong content
- Seeking grant funds during COVID-19
This webinar provides learning opportunities for intermediate to advanced grant seekers with 3+ years of experience.
