This interactive workshop is intended to develop grant writing skills, in general for student organizations and in particular for SEEDS Chapters . The discussions and activities provided in this session will be helpful in obtaining small, non-academic project grants. We will help you learn how to develop a project idea, solicit funding agencies (especially in your local communities), and collaboratively work towards a well-written grant proposal. While this session will be limited by time, we plan to cover a lot of information and be as interactive as possible. During our project development section, we will help you learn to identify key mission goals of funding agencies in order to better prepare your grant proposal. We will also assist in identifying and soliciting funding agencies, to help eliminate some of the pitfalls that many student organizations face when fund raising. Finally we plan to identify several of the key components of a successful grant proposal. We will especially focus on budget development and fund management. This workshop will be led by several student organization leaders who have had experience developing and obtaining special project grants.

Registration Fee: $0
