Webinar Spotlight:
Collaborative Grantseeking: Five Secrets for Success When Partnerships Are Required

To get more bang for their buck in the current economic environment, many public and private sponsors "strongly encourage," if not outright require, collaboration in grant applications. The benefits of collaborating are many, but well well-intended grant collaborations don't always turn out as planned. Or worse, grant funding is awarded to a "phantom collaboration," a proposed partnership that existed in name only. In this webinar, Jeremy T. Miner will discuss five secrets for success when sponsors require collaboration on grant projects. He will also go over key factors that determine whether grant collaborations produce precious "wins" or painful "losses."

Participants will learn about different types of collaborations and essential characteristics of grant leaders that contribute to success when managing people and projects. The webinar will also include tips for integrating the concept of collaboration throughout proposals and actual comments from grant reviewers who evaluated collaborative proposals. Handouts will be distributed in advance of the Collaborative Grantseeking webinar, which will be held on Thursday, October 9, 2014.
