Online Grant Proposals: How to Say Everything in 2,000 Characters or Less

Online grant proposals are here to stay. They are frustrating, exasperating, and daunting. Still, we often must present our case for support in 2,000 characters (~350 words) or less. Writing tight or to the point while getting the attention of the grant reviewer has never been more crucial.


Although brevity is key, grant makers still want engaging narratives that state the issue or problem 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 workshop.


The learning objectives are as follows:


  • Prepare reviewer-friendly proposals
  • Apply deductive writing when preparing responses
  • Edit without losing content
  • Write clearly, concisely, comprehensively, and competitively


The target audience is those with three to five years of experience preparing grant proposals, especially online grant proposals to a foundation or corporation.
