CANCELED: Grant Funding


Oct. 13, 2021, 11am to 12pm

Office/Remote Location



Graduate students often assist academic faculty working on research projects funded by grants. Many graduate students also have great ideas for research projects, program development or community projects of their own, but lack the knowledge needed to secure funding. This workshop will guide students on how to translate ideas into fundable proposals. By reviewing how to identify, apply for, receive, and manage grants, this workshop will provide you with an overview of the full life cycle of a grant. In addition, this workshop will cover what needs to be done after a grant has been awarded, including follow-up reporting and relationship management. By participating in this workshop you will:

  • Learn about resources for seeking grants
  • Learn how to identify relevant grant funding opportunities
  • Learn about tools that can help you find grantmakers that match your organizational goals
  • Learn what the key elements of a grant proposal are and obtain tips about how to write a strong proposal
  • Learn the importance of managing grant reports 
  • Identify common mistakes/pitfalls when writing a grant
  • Understand the grant proposal review process
