Subject: Grant Proposal Writing Seminar at Alberta

Dear Colleague:


The workshop will be held at the University of Alberta, Edmonton on October 24th - 25th, 2018. This special workshop will offer you valuable tools and resources to write an effective proposal to government, foundation, and corporate grant makers. Our resourceful and expert instructor, Mr. Alan Paul, will teach you proven strategies to develop proposal ideas that meet priorities of grant makers, to write proposal narratives that are clear and persuasive, and to avoid common mistakes that could doom your grant application. He will also discuss, among other things, pre-proposal planning techniques, communication with grant makers, handling application components, and budgeting.


The instructor will spend a couple of hours discussing persuasive writing in general: focused on how to be clear and concise. Besides this, I address the specific challenge of how to address non-expert or hybrid audiences (i.e., those which include BOTH experts and non-experts).  In a very detailed way, he cover what should be included and what can be left out, and how to structure sentences and paragraphs so non-experts can follow.  

The course will have only Canadian relevant information. Our organization will only provide Canada information for grant seekers to enhance their funding abilities.


Our class size is limited, so please visit our website today to register or register via email. Please let me know if you are interested in sending any staff to attend our workshop or would like to take this class.  We do offer discount for past attendees taking the class as a refresher course.

Best regards,

Alicia Yee
