Beginner’s Guide to Grant Writing Program

(BEDFORD) – The two-day Beginner’s Guide to Grant Writing program is a great skill builder for the beginner or intermediate grant writer.

Whatever your skill level, come with an idea and be ready to write.

The event will be Thursday, February 6 and Thursday, March 5, at 9 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.

Day 1, will be held at the Orange County Community Center, at 1075 N. Sandy Hook Road, in Paoli.

Day 2, will be held at the Bedford Area Chamber of Commerce, at 1116 16th Street, in Bedford.

At the end of Day One, you will have a proposal outline and all of the resources you need to expand your outline into a full proposal.

Return on Day Two with your full proposal and we will put you into the role of a reviewer, teach you strategies for finding funding, and provide you with an opportunity to polish your proposal and send it in for a strong professional review.

“Whether your project is big or small, this workshop will give you the information you need to submit proposals confidently,” says Lesley Lodmell, Purdue Extension Educator.

The workshop is $175, which includes all materials and lunch on both days.
