Writing and submitting grant applications can so often be both daunting or simply frustrating

Putting together what might be a good grant application is no longer enough!

Similarly, a good project that may help a lot of people is also no longer enough!

From experience we know that frustration usually comes in one of three ways:

1. Lots of effort put in, only to receive a friendly rejection letter that tries to convey that you were almost there, it's just that they were over subscribed.

2. "Not quite what they were looking for..." but as far as YOU can see, your project matches exactly what they stated they were looking for!

3. This grant looks good and looks a great fit for what you want to do. You have a strong intention to apply but somehow just never get around to it, and then... it's too late.

Once you go through this course, there'll be no guessing.

• You'll know that you've covered all the bases and submitted a great bid.

• You'll know that you've spelt out in no uncertain terms that this is the project they want and need to fund.

• You'll be so prepared for any grant application that comes your way that you definitely won't be leaving money on the table.

Through this course you'll get access to video tutorials, downloadable course materials and resources you can use for practice, or adapt for your real-life applications, or even use in-house to teach your own colleagues. Not only that, but you'll have complete access to all the new materials as the course get's updated or if we ever add new modules.
