Week 4. April 22 , 2021 | 12 PM to 1: 30 PM – Get that Grant III: Think Like a Project Manager
Developing grant proposals frequently take a team. It can take months to put together an application for Federal and other large grant opportunities.

This class will offer tools and insights into how project managers plan, organize and direct the completion of a large project (such as a Federal application). This class will also share tips specific to submitting strong Federal applications. This can be taken as a stand-alone class or part of the series.
