SOLINET, Atlanta, GA
Wednesday, August 6, 2003
9am - 4pm

    This full-day workshop focuses on preparing for and writing

    based upon those particular granting entities' requirements.

    sources will also be addressed. The majority of the day is spent
    covering the elements of a grant proposal and practicing writing
    those elements.
