Beginner's Guide to Grant Writing

Ohio State University Extension Community Development Hosts Beginner’s Guide to Grant Writing Course


The 2-day Beginner’s Guide to Grant Writing Course covers what to do before you write a grant; organizational mission and structure; components of a grant proposal; finding and connecting with funders; and writing and finalizing an actual proposal for review. Attendees should come prepared with a grant project idea which they will detail out further during the course. An optional review of the drafted grant by a professional grant writer is also included.  A grant writing program manual is provided as well as a discussion with a panel of grant writing experts.

The two-day program is taught by Educators from Ohio State University Extension and Central State University.
