About the course

The crafting of Federal grant applications is a challenge for even experienced writers; they need to understand both the proposed project and the nuances of each section. As grant programs become more competitive, attention to detail during the writing process becomes more crucial. The workshop format allows you to develop and refine a sample grant application narrative using tools you can adapt to your needs. You are encouraged to bring your own application to gather feedback. This is an elective course in the Pass-Through and Recipient Tracks of the GMCP™.
