Lead by Donna McNeil, this full-day workshop will take you through the steps of researching, writing, and selecting work samples along with an inside look at the review process for a grant application. Prior to the start to the session, participants would be expected to identify a project they would like to seek funding for, research (with guidance) places to go for grants which best fit their project, and begin to write the narrative for the grant proposal. During the workshop, McNeil will read and offer suggestions on those narratives either privately or, with their permission, use them as learning models for the seminar. By the end of the day participants should be well on the way to completing their grant proposal with the tools and greater understanding in their pocket.
