10/9/2013: How to Use Data to Get Grants
October 9 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Thanks to computers, it is easier to collect and obtain data for a grant proposal than ever before. There’s so much data, though, that it can difficult to determine which data to present—especially when grant applications only allow concise answers.
This webinar explains which data grantmakers are looking for, and where to present statistics and other information within the grant proposal. Multiple examples from actual, funded grant proposals will show how data solves grant writers’ most knotty problems by creating need statements, formulating project objectives, devising evaluation measures, and more.
- A fundamental understanding of which data to gather, when and where in the grant proposal to use data, and how to present data effectively.
- Knowledge of which data funders want to see provided in grant proposals.
- Real-life examples of data featured in funded grant proposals.
