This all-day presentation is the cornerstone of Grant Writers' Seminars and Workshops LLC's seminar programs. It comprehensively addresses both practical and conceptual aspects that are important to writing competitive grant proposals. Emphasis is given to doing the “extra” things that can make the difference between success and failure.

Regardless of the agency, participants are taught to write with a linear progression of logic, which leads reviewers through an application without them knowing that they are being led. Coping strategies to overcome the fact that applicants are writing for two different audiences – the assigned reviewers, who read the application in its entirety, and non-assigned reviewers who may have read little, or nothing, of the proposal before the meeting of the review panel – are emphasized.

All participants receive an extensive handout, as well as a field-relevant copy of The Grant Application Writer’s Workbook.
