Online Education: Level UP: Bridging Theory and Practice

Level UP - Accelerate Your Proposal Writing Skills

Over five sessions, Alice Ruhnke, Founder and Owner of The Grant Advantage, will walk you through an entire grant proposal step-by-step, infusing resources to help you integrate the material into your grantseeking efforts. In addition to lecture-based learning, participants will engage with one another through meaningful structured activities and receive feedback on assignments designed to help you develop an organizational background, compelling statement of need, process and outcome evaluation, approach, and budget.
