Workshop Description

In an era of budget cuts, learning to write better grant proposals might just pay for itself. This course surveys the types of state, federal, and private foundation grants available and provides information about researching and writing grant proposals. Topics include types of grants, types of funders, elements of a grant proposal, the grant review process, managing your grant project, reporting requirements, and funding resources.

Upon completing this seminar you’ll be able to:

  • Explain the grant review process
  • Differentiate between types of grants and funders
  • Identify parts of a grant proposal and where to look for resources
  • Identify alternative sources of funding

Who should attend? Archivists, librarians, and other staff members who have an interest in or responsibility to explore funding resources for an institution. An emphasis on preservation grants is stressed.


When participants were asked “what aspect of the workshop methods/materials was most valuable to you?” responses included:

  • “Overview and understanding of needs was exactly on target-gave good resources and suggestions for use”-Mary Morganti
  • “Thorough in the basics of grant writing”-Leah Rosenblum
  • “Presentation was clear, logical and very accessible for someone, myself, with little background, while still being in-depth.”-Clark Hansen
  • “URL’s and resource addresses because they saved me research time”-Shirley Burton

Attendance limited to 35.
