Course Description

In a time when budgets are shrinking, more and more libraries are turning to external funding, such as grants, to help fund special initiatives, projects, or services. If you have never written a grant proposal before, it can be a daunting task to keep track of all the required forms and documents in addition to finding a funding source.

In this course, we will learn about what makes up a strong grant proposal, the typical grant review process, and how to ease into the world of grants by identifying sources for funding.

Learning objectives for this session include
  • Describe the elements of a grant proposal
  • Describe the grant review process
  • Differentiate between types of grants and funders
  • Identify and evaluate sources of funding
