Grant-writing workshop set for February 18 at AUNE

A workshop on proposal writing and the grants process will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday, February 18, in the library media room at Antioch University New England (AUNE). The workshop is open to the public.

Don Woodhouse, grants office director at AUNE, will lead the interactive workshop. He will discuss the role of grant funding in nonprofit organizations, provide an overview of the grants process and give practical advice on planning and writing competitive proposals. Participants will learn how to look for potential funders and the basic format and elements of a grant proposal.

Woodhouse will emphasize how to clearly describe and document program needs and proposed activities. The workshop will also address budget planning and preparation, and how to evaluate program success. Other topics include how to register for and submit proposals online, and how to manage grant awards.

At AUNE, Woodhouse advises faculty members and students on program development, proposal writing and managing grant awards. He has extensive experience as a researcher and research administrator, developing proposals and managing grants for universities, hospitals, theaters and other nonprofit groups. He reviews proposals for the federal Health Resources and Services Administration and has written successful proposals to the National Science Foundation, the Department of Education, the Department of Justice and many state agencies and foundations.

The fee for the workshop is $140. Preregistration is required and early registration is encouraged. Registration forms and a check for the workshop fee must be received two weeks prior to the workshop date. A mail-in registration form is available here.
