ATHENS, Ohio (April 3, 2007) -- Ohio University Lifelong Learning will host the "Developing Winning Grant Proposals" workshop Friday, April 20, on the Athens Campus. The workshop will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Human Resources and Training Center room 141-145.
Designed for those with little or no grant writing experience, the instructor will take you step-by-step through the entire process. Workshop participants learn how to conduct productive funding searches and communicate effectively with funders. Attention is given to the technical aspects of grant proposal development which are closely reviewed by funders.
Workshop participants will also learn the format of a complete grant proposal including how to tailor proposal formats to meet the requirements of different funders and how to improve the match between grant seeker needs and funder priorities.
Upon successful completion of the course, .6 CEUs will be awarded to the participant.
The instructor, Nancy Heller, is an accomplished grant writer with many years of experience. Heller has been a teacher, program administrator, grant writer and adult education consultant. She has written successful grant proposals for schools, arts organizations, nonprofit groups and small businesses and has served as a volunteer for the Small Business Development Center, helping startup organizations research and write grant proposals.
"The grant writing process is quite complex. Our courses help participants identify and clarify the steps necessary to write a grant proposal that will get funded," Lisa S. Dael, program coordinator, said.
Cost for the seminar is $125 for community members and $99 for Ohio University faculty, staff and students. Pre-registration is required.
