Successful Grant Writing for Archives
Wednesday, February 27, 2019
10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. (Pacific Standard Time)
Successful grants have the ability to transform access by increasing visibility to archival collection material. However, the limited number of archival grant opportunities can prove to be a challenge for grant writers. This webinar, presented by Greg Williams, Director, Gerth Archives & Special Collections, CSU Dominguez Hills Library, will focus on preparing successful grants for individual archival institutions as well as collaborative projects spanning several institutions.
Please join us as Greg guides potential grant writers through the multi-faceted process in generating a sellable project, which can include: writing the various elements of a successful grant proposal; pitching to grant program officers; managing a successful grant-funded project; and dealing with reviewers, feedback, and rejection.
The cost is $10 for SCA members; $5 for student members; and $20 for non-members. All registrants will receive a link to the webinar recording after the webinar is completed.
