Go beyond the basics of proposal writing, and strengthen your grant proposal at the Humanities Council’s Grant Writing Clinic on April 22, 2014.


Open to grant-writers at all experience levels, this Grant Writing Clinic will give individualized feedback to each participant on one of their own grant proposals, while providing them with the fundamental knowledge to strengthen their fundraising efforts.

Using group exercises and feedback, participants will gain a better understanding of:

• the grant-seeking process,

• the components of a competitive grant proposal,

• tips from the grant-maker’s perspective,

• and how to build a relationship with a funder.

As a participant, you will receive peer and instructor critiques on your proposal, review peer proposals as a “grant-maker,” and identify ways that you can strengthen your grant-writing.

Previous attendees have said:

“…the grant proposal workshop was extremely helpful to me, especially with Rachel critiquing my proposal. Perhaps the best bargain of the year!”

“Since I have no experience in the grant / proposal process, this workshop was extremely helpful in giving me a better understanding of the process and also where to go next from here.”

“This is the first time I’ve gotten professional feedback on a grant application. This is a tremendous gift to me.”

Class preparation: All participants will be able to submit one current or previous grant proposal that they have worked on. Individual feedback with suggestions will be returned to the participant at the clinic. Applications cannot be proposals intended for submission to the Humanities Council (we provide grant application feedback during the grant-making process). Proposals must be submitted to the instructor by e-mail (rdutcher@wdchumanities.org) as a Word document by April 15th, or the participant will not receive individualized feedback.
