Grant Writing Essentials Workshops

A variety of educational opportunities await Ball State faculty, staff, and students intent on developing a skill set for grant writing.

The "Grant Writing Essentials" (formerly "Grants Dollars Trilogy") is a four-part series led my SPO Program Manager, Stanley Geidel and offered by Ball State's Office of Learning and Development. The sessions include:
  • Developing a Fundable Idea: Focuses on how to transform ideas for grant proposals into fundable propositions. Specifically, how to develop, refine, and test their proposal ideas to increase their chances for funding success.
  • Writing the Proposed Narrative: Provides detailed guidance for developing proposal content as well as how to present the grant narrative for maximum effectiveness. Several tips for success are included that will help distinguish and professionalize your proposal.
  • Budget Development: Outlines a straight-forward approach on how to construct a grant budget. Information on direct costs, indirect costs, and cost sharing is presented, along with advice for developing a winning budget strategy.
  • Putting It All Together--Writing a Sample Proposal: Attendees at this workshop will have the opportunity to create a grant proposal and present it to a professional review panel. The panel will critique each proposal and offer suggestions and advice.
