How do you tell your organization’s story in only 2,500 characters?  150 words?

How do you create a storyline for the reviewer to follow when you have numerous fillable fields to complete online that may or may not be read in the order that you complete them on the screen?

Online grant applications are here to stay and overall bring a great deal of efficiency to the grant seeking and grantmaking process. However, the process looks and feels less personal.

One of the most common challenges with online applications is how to have your application stand out in a sea of grant applications when you are all faced with the same formatting restrictions and character or word limited requirements.

In “How to Excel in Online Applications and Get the Grant” we will address how to create a concise, compelling and competitive application for online grant application scenarios.

Utilizing previously submitted applications, we will look at specific examples to see what works best to capture your grantmakers’ attention and discuss how to create strong online applications that win the grant for your organization.

“Diane was excellent, thorough, engaging and certainly made me re-strategize about how I submit my next online application; she provided some excellent tips being successful in submitting my online grants i.e. start reading your application out of order, master your elevator pitch, use variety of descriptive words, and most importantly - stay away from the acronyms.”
