Grant Writing Workshops

Are you considering applying for a grant or fellowship in the immediate future?  

Is this your first application, or are you looking for a refresher on strong grant writing practice, or what goes into a successful application?  

Are there specific more specific aspects or sections of application forms that you would like to discuss?
