Please note: Because this workshop is being offered at a reduced price through special grant funding to support local collecting institutions, registration will be limited to those currently working in not-for-profit organizations that hold, collect, and make available historical records. Also, only one representative from each institution will be admitted, so please coordinate registrations accordingly. Note also that payment will be required upon registration. Your registration will not be considered valid until payment has been submitted.
This workshop will focus on the core components of and approaches to grant writing as well as providing resources for applicable grants. All granting agencies/institutions/foundations have different requirements and forms that need to be completed.
Some applications can be quite complex and others can be as simple as writing a one-page letter. However, the basics of putting together a successful grant proposal remain fairly straight forward. Therefore, this workshop will present an overview of the grant landscape, provide suggestions on how to locate funding opportunities, describe how to conceive and develop a project, provide suggestions on grant writing, explain the review process, address grant administration, and review a successful NHPRC grant proposal.
While this session will not guarantee you a successful proposal (no one can do that), it will enable you to approach proposal-writing in a systematic and thorough manner.
Who should attend:
Anyone who is interested in writing a grant proposal, whether it happens to be to a local foundation, a state agency, a federal agency, or a state, geographical, or national foundation. The concepts presented here will serve you well in any of these situations.
1. Provide a general understanding of the grant-funding landscape
2. Describe the grant-writing process and core concepts
3. Develop an understanding of the steps necessary to complete a grant application
4. Provide a brief list of grant-writing resources and granting agencies
