Science & Art of Grant-writing
Stafford Technical Center is pleased to announce that Anne Lezak’s personal and professional schedule will allow her to facilitate yet another session of The Science and Art of Grant Writing class that will be offered through the Adult and Continuing Education Office at Stafford Technical Center. The autumn session of The Science and Art of Grant Writing is an excellent opportunity for Rutland County educators, non-profit directors, and health and social service professionals to develop the skills necessary to compete for precious funding through state and federal agencies and private foundations. Our relationship with Anne Lezak provides you with an opportunity to receive training from one of the best grant writers in New England, and at a very affordable cost.
This course will provide concrete, practical guidance for preparing successful grant proposals. Participants will learn how to organize proposals, find and use pertinent facts and data, and make your proposal stand out in a crowd. We will discuss strategies to fully meet common grant application requirements, the importance of proposal appearance, how to get excellent letters of support, and what you need to know to search for grant opportunities. You will learn to avoid common errors that keep many proposals from getting funded. Participants are urged to come with actual proposal ideas; students will each complete a “proposal concept paper” or draft grant proposal by the end of the course. To register for this course, you must have strong writing skills, with the ability to write clearly and persuasively about topics that interest you.
