Hands on activity

Hands On Activity

  • Choose a Project

  • You have 10 Minutes to write a grant narrative.

  • I will backup to Last Slide so you have the questions.

  • Be Concise – Not wordy

  • Answer the Questions you would ask.

  • Assume the Reviewer knows NOTHING about your project.


From the reviewers standpoint

From the Reviewers Standpoint

Always keep in mind that MOST of the time, people reading and deciding on your grant – May not know you, your organization, or why you need the project.

You must paint a picture of your project for the reviewers.
