How to get Money for your Project or Student Group

4 Apr

What is a grant?

A grant is some money that is given to you by an organization (either a government department or a charity or a business) so that you can afford to run a project.

Sounds good, how do you get one? You have to apply for a grant by filling in a grant application form.

Don’t know how to do this? Tried to do it but found it confusing? Are you just curious to know more about grants and how they work?

Attend our Grant Writing Workshop!

Grant Writing for the Terrified! DOSA presents a grant writing workshop to help you to understand grants better and how to apply for money.

In this workshop we will discuss:

  • What you should write in a grant application
  • What some of the technical terms, vocabulary and words in grant applications mean
  • How to talk to organizations that give grants
  • Handy tips for making your grant application more successful.
  • Where to go for more information.

Workshop exercises will be based on working through a real grant application so you can see what one looks like.

This workshop is meant to make applying for grants less confusing and stressful. It will be useful, practical and hands on. But it will also be fun and relaxed. Newcomers to grant writing and fundraising are welcome.
