This intensive workshop will focus on writing effective proposal narratives and constructing coherent budgets for funders. The format will combine short lecture with hands-on work on narratives and budgets. You will be required to bring a working project narrative, budget and the corresponding guidelines for the opportunity you are applying for–so do come prepared to work! Participants should possess a basic knowledge of grant-seeking tactics and application materials such as bios, statements, and work samples.
