8/28/2013: The Importance of Validating Your Statement of Need
August 28 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm| Free
In this session led by the author of Grant Writing for Dummies, Dr. Bev (Browning) will share how the Statement of Need is viewed by grantmaking decision makers (and peer reviewers). Validating your Statement of Need can determine your grant application’s fate.
- Increased understanding of why using words like “all, many, most, some, and mearly” in the Statement of Need are application killers (begging for rejection notices).
- Increased understanding why recent statistics/demographics must be used in the Statement of Need.
- Increased knowledge of how to use the Internet to find illusive supporting documentation for the Statement of Need.
