The final guidance for the Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards under Title 2 of the Code of Federal Regulations (2 C.F.R. 200) went into effect on Dec. 26, 2014, impacting not only your post-award functions but your approach to pre-award functions as well, including what is needed, expected, and desired from a grant proposal.

Competition for grants is much higher now than it was a decade ago. With the increasing competition, grant writers not only need to learn how the codified pre-award guidance that has been issued by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) will impact what’s expected in a grant proposal, but they will also need to know how to translate “dry” statistics into emotionally compelling language. Grant writers need to know the leading-edge methods used by researchers around the world to derive Social Return on Investment. And they need to be able to communicate the results of that work through multiple channels to gain a competitive advantage. The organizations who win grants today use language that compels the heart and mind most effectively.

Are you ready to learn these secrets of grant-writing success?
