Basic Grant Writing Workshop
Thursday August 25 2016 9AM - 4 PM, Lunch on your own
Oklahoma Department of Libraries, 200 NE 18 Street, Oklahoma City

This is a full-day class for museum, library, and archive professionals who have no previous grant writing experience. Workshop registration fee is $30.

By the end of the course, participants should be able to meet the following objectives:

  • Describe the differences between federal and private funding
  • List the main information most often required by funding agencies
  • Define and give examples of basic grant proposal terms including cost-share, eligible expenses, direct and indirect costs, narrative, and others.
  • Identify at least 5 resources to assist with writing grant proposals.

In-class activities will reinforce these objectives and students will receive a bibliography of resources to use when they return to their organization. There will be time for students to discuss specific ideas they have for grant funded projects.

Space is limited for the Basic Grant Writing Workshop.
No travel assistance will be provided for this workshop.
