Do you want more funding for your organization? Are you applying for grants this fall and need to improve your chances?

AASLH is offering two webinars this month to help you prepare for and write better grants.


Getting Ready for Grants
It’s all in the preparation!  Successful applications have more to do with institutional and project preparation than with writing — really. In this fast-paced, fun, slightly off-the-wall session we will discuss the characteristics of a grant-ready institution and a grant-ready project, and then review the important components of the proposal-writing team and a successful proposal. There’s no need to have a project or grant deadline yet, just an interest in getting ready to get grants.

Writing the Grant – What’s the Process Like?
Proposal-writing is not rocket science. It’s a skill – and a bit of an art – and anyone can learn.  If your institution is ready to attract grants, and you’ve organized your project well, then it’s time to write.  We’ll look at where to look for good information to make your case; what to do and what not to do when choosing words and examples; how to help yourself over writing-blocks; and how to help get the application in on time! There’s no need to have a project or grant deadline yet, just an interest in helping your institution get its grant applications submitted!
