Grant Writing Workshops Storm the Midwest

March 3, 2012 § Leave a comment

We’re not talking about last week’s super-cell storms. Zocklein & Associates, a grant writing powerhouse, has scheduled workshops across the Midwest for the next several months.  Here are some reasons you should go.

The workshops will take place in the following cities at the following times:

  • Detroit, MI – March 12-13, 2012
  • Chicago, IL – March 14-15, 2012
  • Cleveland, OH – May 30-31, 2012
  • Detroit, MI – August 21-22, 2012
  • Chicago, IL – August 23-24, 2012

There are many draws to attending a grant-writing workshop.

  • You’ll get your butt into gear to finish that lingering proposal you’ve always wanted to write.
  • You’ll gain understanding, as a representative from a non-profit organization, government agency, or school, as for how to better serve your community with your brilliant ideas.
  • You’ll have one of your written proposals peer-reviewed.  This means that you actually get to write a proposal and then have it read by an audience who is willing to give you feedback.

Here are the rates for attendees:

  • $375 per person
  • $100 per returning alumnus
  • $75 early bird alumnus

The cost of a workshop seems a bit high, but hey, it is always possible to find somebody who can fund you to go, if your organization is willing.  It could be a good opportunity to gain or enhance your skills in grant proposal writing and resource development.  Here’s what those fees will earn you:

  • You’ll learn a method of grant writing for government, foundation, and corporate funds.
  • You’ll receive hands-on grant writing practices with peer review.
  • You’ll complete a 3-page letter proposal to individuals and corporations.
  • You’ll complete a plan for long-term development by acquiring unrestricted funds and resources.
  • You’ll complete a plan for long-term development by acquiring unrestricted funds and resources.
  • You can turn the experience into a career as a free-lance grant writer or development director.
  • You’ll receive up-to-date information on grants and scholarships for higher education and student loan repayment plans.
