Writing a Winning Grant Proposal

Featuring Amy Bernstein, Grantwriting Strategist

Intellectual Warehouse

The grant narrative is the heart and soul of any strong proposal. This is your opportunity to get a potential funder excited about your project. The narrative must convey a clear vision for the project, make a compelling case for why it is needed, and provide just enough detail and context to persuade a funder that you are competent to execute the project. This is a challenging strategic writing exercise, often made even more challenging by the word limits many grant forms impose. In this session, we’ll break down the components of a successful grant narrative, review tips and techniques for clear and compelling writing, and give you the opportunity to draft at least a portion of a strong narrative yourself. We’ll also discuss pitfalls to avoid. You will leave this session with a good grasp of what it takes to write a strong grant narrative.
