for Government Grants Workshop
AGWA offers the 3-day Grant Writing for Government Grants Workshop. This workshop teaches the student the finer points of grant writing enabling a grant application to be more competitive. This workshop is a hands-on experience where participants develop a project, practice pre-writing exercises, write sections of an application, prepare budgets, and peer review. The emphasis is on competitive project grants. Research grants are mentioned, but not discussed in depth. The course is taught from the employee's perspective who works for the grant applicant. A Certificate of Completion is available to students who complete all of the assignments during the workshop. The workshop begins at 8:30 AM and concludes at 5:00 PM each day. This workshop is appropriate for:
