Workshop series to teach successful grant writing

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Employees of nonprofit organizations and government agencies can learn how to prepare effective grant proposals at Purdue Extension workshops scheduled through mid-November.

"The Beginner's Guide to Grant Writing" is part of a series of workshops designed to help beginning and intermediate grant writers craft persuasive proposals. The two-day workshop will be held at three locations in the state. Sessions will be led by local Extension educators and supplemented by presentations from grant-writing experts and professionals from Purdue University.

On the first day of each workshop, participants will learn a step-by-step process to build their proposals, and they will learn how to find needed resource materials. On the second day, participants will learn how to review, finalize and submit their proposals and to find funding sources.
