The University of Iowa

*Proposal Writing Bootcamp Virtual Workshop
Event Category 

$525 early-bird price; $695 starting July 27

This course will begin with orientation on August 3 then meet on the three Tuesdays following (August 3, 10, 17, and 24) for highly interactive two-hour sessions each day. 

Learn the essential knowledge and skills to develop effective foundation grant proposals. You will connect with expert Candid trainers and peers to learn the practical skills needed to: build the key components of a competitive grant proposal to a foundation, develop a well-organized budget, and identify a targeted list of foundation funding prospects. You will be encouraged to approach your proposal from the funder's perspective and to think critically about what makes a compelling pitch. To accommodate diversity in learning styles, the three weeks are grounded in project-based learning and include individual writing time, self-paced e-learning, live virtual lectures, and small group discussions and peer activities. 

We encourage you to prepare for class by identifying a project for which you would like to seek foundation funding. The workshop will include opportunities to draft a logic model and letter of inquiry that you can use to pursue funding for this project. 

We have designed the 3-week course to be equivalent to the 3 days of time spent together during our in-person Proposal Writing Boot Camp. As such, you should plan to invest a total of 6 to 8 hours per week on the course.
