This three-week course aims to demystify the proposal and grant writing process and to provide a framework for successful grant writing success in an effort to improve one’s odds of securing funding. As the first part of a series of courses, we focus on establishing an understanding of how to formulate generic and donor-specific applications and how to appropriately target applications to reviewers. By the end of the course, participants will be better equipped to identify appropriate sources of funding, to draft high-scoring and successful applications, to navigate the application and submission processes, and to follow up with reviewer comments received from a donor agency.

Structured lectures and in-class discussions of the components of successful grant applications combined with writing exercises and instructor and peer feedback.
