Event Description

The Insider Truth on What Reviewers Are Looking For in Your Grant Proposals.

Grant Professionals often wonder if reviewers even read their proposals. There is a misconception that exists in the profession that reviewers skim proposals, want you to write to low readability levels, and lack a true interest in all that you have done. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Join this session by expert speaker Cyndi MacKenzie, GPC, to get the insider truth on what reviewers are looking for in your proposals. Cyndi will provide you answers to questions and dilemmas such as:

  • Does it even matter what we write?
  • Do personal stories matter?
  • Do they care that our community really needs these resources?
  • Do we have to follow these silly guidelines about font, spacing, page numbers?
  • What does it all have to do with my community?
  • Do they have any idea how much time I put into writing this?

This webinar will reinforce for you that your hard work is taken seriously and that reviewers are ethical in the way they consider your proposals. You’ll learn how to write proposals that appeal to your reviewers and help you succeed in your grant seeking endeavors.
