Grant Writing Workshops for Extension Agents

Submitted by Chris Onstad

Soliciting external funds has become more important to Extension agents each year. Pursuing grants is one of the common processes that can be used to solicit funding to help with Extension programming. Writing grants tends to be a technical writing experience and there are many common proposal attributes among funding organizations. Learning about these traits can assist the beginning grant writer in securing one of their first successful grant awards.

To help those that haven’t had much experience in grant proposal preparation, there will be four training workshops across Kansas. These workshops will include topics such as developing a focused need, finding supporting data for the proposal, elements of a successful grant, where to find grants and the construction of a supporting budget. Attendees will be asked to do some homework ahead of time on a potential opportunity for a proposal.

We hope to see you there! Workshop Dates:

December 6, 2017 - Garden City, SW Research and Extension Center
December 11, 2017 – Manhattan, Wheat Innovation Center
March 7, 2018 – Hays, Research Center
March 14, 2018 – Parsons, SE Research and Extension Center

The workshops will be from 9:30 till 3. Registration fee of $20 per person includes lunch. Register with Regional Office closest to meeting location.
