The Funding Institute's
Grant Funding and
Proposal Writing Essentials Course
will be held in
at the Seattle Public Library
8:00 AM - 5:00
The Grant Funding and Proposal Writing
is an intensive and detailed introduction to the process, structure,
and skill of professional proposal writing. This course is characterized by
its ability to act as a thorough overview, introduction, and refresher at
the same time. In this course, participants will learn the entire proposal
writing process and complete the course with a solid understanding of not
only the ideal proposal structure, but a holistic understanding of the
essential factors, which determine whether or not a
program gets funded. Through the completion of interactive exercises and
activities, participants will complement expert lectures by putting proven
techniques into practice. This course is designed for both the beginner
looking for a thorough introduction and the intermediate looking for a
refresher course that will strengthen their grant acquisition skills. This
class, simply put, is designed to get results by creating professional
grant proposal writers.
Participants will become competent program planning and proposal
writing professionals after successful completion of the Grant Funding and Proposal Writing
Essentials Course. In three active and informative days,
students will be exposed to the art of successful grant writing
practices, and led on a journey that ends with a masterful grant proposal.
The Grant Funding and
Proposal Writing Essentials Course consists of three (3)
subject areas that will be completed during the three-day workshop.
(1) Fundamentals of Program
This session is centered on the belief that "it's all about the
program." This intensive session will teach professional program
development essentials and program evaluation. While most grant writing
"workshops" treat program development and evaluation as separate from the
writing of a proposal, this class will teach students the relationship
between overall program planning and grant writing.
(2) Proposal Writing
Designed for both the novice and experienced grant writer, this component
will make each student an overall proposal writing specialist. In addition
to teaching the basic components of a grant proposal, successful
approaches, and the do's and don'ts of grant writing, this course is
infused with expert principles that will lead to a mastery of the process.
Strategy resides at the forefront of this course's intent to illustrate
grant writing as an integrated, multidimensional, and dynamic
endeavor. Each student will learn to stop writing the grant and to start
writing the story. Ultimately, this class will illustrate how each
component of the grant proposal represents an opportunity to use proven
techniques for generating support.
At its foundation, this course will address the basics of foundation,
corporation, and government grant research. However, this course will teach
a strategic funding research approach that encourages students to see
research not as something they do before they write a proposal, but as an
integrated part of the grant seeking process. Students will be exposed to
online and database research tools, as well as publications and directories
that contain information about foundation, corporation, and
government grant opportunities. Focusing on funding sources and basic
social science research, this course teaches students how to use research
as part of a strategic grant acquisition effort.
