Writing Effective Funding Proposals

1st Sep 2015 09:45 – 16:00

LiFE Framework: Leadership, Learning and Teaching, Business and Industry Interface (what does this mean?)

Workshop Description:

This interactive and participatory workshop will help participants to make more effective approaches to funders.

During the day we will examine:
  • What you need to have in place before you start putting pen to paper
  • What makes a good project for you and for the funder
  • Why funders give
  • The key elements of an effective proposal
  • Finding your funders – tips on research and resources

At the end of the day:
  • You will have a better understanding of the funding landscape in Scotland
  • You will be aware of what funders expect you to have in place before you approach them
  • You will feel more confident in putting together an effective application
  • Your knowledge on researching funders will be increased

Participants are encouraged to bring along projects and work they are looking to fund along with budgets and costings if available.

The session will start at 10am, with registration and refreshments available from 9.45am.

Places for this session are strictly limited, and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Reserve your place now using the booking link below.
