HAYS, Kan. -- "The ABC's of Grant Writing," the next workshop offered by the Management Development Center at Fort Hays State University, will give participants the opportunity to learn the basics or update their skills in writing grants at 1 p.m. Thursday, May 28, in the Stouffer Lounge of the university's Memorial Union.

The half-day workshop is designed as an introduction for beginners and as a refresher for grant writers looking to polish existing skills and receive updates about funding trends.

Leslie Paige, coordinator of the FHSU Office of Scholarship and Sponsored Projects, will facilitate.

"Writing grant proposals can be challenging," said Sabrina William, director of the MDC. "Much of the information provided at the workshop is applicable to anyone interested in writing their first proposal or those who have written grants before but may not have been as successful as they hoped."

Participants will learn strategies to find federal and non-federal funding sources, the basics of proposal development, and tips for increasing the competiveness of your proposal.

Each participant who completes the workshop will also receive a completion certificate.

The cost is $119, with refreshments included.

Hays Area Chamber of Commerce members are eligible for a 15% discount on this workshop.
