Beth Bunkers with the O’Brien County office of Iowa State University Extension says Grant Writing 101, which is sponsored by ISU Extension and Outreach, will provide hands-on training in seeking and writing successful grant applications.

Bunkers says the phrase “writing a grant” has become the vernacular in the field when someone means “writing a grant proposal for submission to an agency that’s offering a grant.”

She emphasizes that not only will they talk about writing the proposal, they’ll also suggest possible grants. She gives us an idea of people who might benefit from attending the workshop.

Again, the workshop will be presented from 5:30 to 8:30 PM on Tuesday, January 26th at the O’Brien County Extension office, at 340 Second Street Southeast in Primghar.

Participants are encouraged to bring a laptop, iPad or tablet device to the workshop, if they have one available.

Cost of the workshop is $20, with registration required by Friday, January 22nd. A light meal will be served at the beginning of the program. Call the O’Brien County Extension office at 957-5045 or email to register.

The presenter, Jane Goeken has more than 27 years of successful grant writing experience, including extensive work with a variety of federal, state, local and foundation grant programs. She has also served as a grant application reviewer and has helped set up grant award and review programs.
