Workshop on grant writing

From: Melinda Markell <umca<-a>
Date: Thursday, January 20, 2005
The Upper Midwest Conservation Association (UMCA) Presents the

Writing Grants for Conservation Projects
Minneapolis Institute of Arts
2400 Third Avenue South
Minneapolis MN 55404
March 17-18, 2005

This workshop will provide instruction on how to write successful
grants for funding conservation projects.  The goal is for every
participant to develop a complete grant proposal ready for
submission to a funding agency.  Learn where and how to locate
funding sources; how to understand conservation grant protocol and
the review process; how to conduct an internal review to present
your institution and collection as the best candidate for funding;
how to develop an achievable project; how to write a practical
proposal; how to write a realistic budget; options for raising
"matching funds," and what to do when you receive grant funding.
Receive direct assistance on your draft proposal from an experienced
conservation grant writer both during and after the workshop until
your application is completed.  This workshop will take place from
10:00am to approximately 5:00pm each day.

The general cost of this workshop is $245 for two-days; with an UMCA
membership, the cost is $195.

New discounted fees are available to students and qualified
institutions. Qualified institutions with budgets at or below
$50,000 need only notify UMCA to receive a reduced fee of $75.00 per
day or a further discounted fee of $50.00 per day for UMCA members.
Students receive a flat fee of $35.00 per day.
