Grant applications are changing at the speed of light! Learn techniques to prepare successful online and paper proposals that get to the point quickly and motivate grantmakers to provide support.

Online grant applications are here to stay! They are frustrating, exasperating, and daunting. Still, how do you convey your case for support when your need statement and project description sections can only be 2,000 characters or roughly 350 words in length?

Although brevity is key, grantmakers still want engaging narratives that state the issue or problem succinctly while providing evidence that your organization will achieve the proposed outcomes. Knowing what to say and how to say it in a short grant application is the focus of this session. Writing tight or to the point while getting the attention of the grant reviewer has never been more crucial. Learn how to position your case for support using deductive writing techniques that help you get to your point quicker. Eliminate superlatives from your writing and just say it.

This session will ask the question, how do you approach the process of preparing an online grant application? The methods discussed will help you design successful paper and paperless proposal narratives including those to the different levels of government as well as foundations and corporations.
