The Grant Search:  Evaluating Opportunities that Fit is structured to assist participants in taking their grant idea to the next level.  Designed for Rider faculty and administrators who have participated in a past grant writing workshop or have already received grant support, this workshop will offer insight on the grant searching process and offer an opportunity for each participant to review potential grant opportunities related to their specific area of interest. Rider's Grants Officers will provide one-on-one guidance to participants during this hands-on workshop.

The Grants Development Boot Camp is an intensive workshop designed to introduce the grant writing process.  This workshop will cover topics such as searching for grant opportunities and reviewing the major sections of a grant proposal. As part of the workshop experience, participants will take part in an exercise that allows them to begin thinking about their approach to writing the major sections of a grant proposal.  By the conclusion of the workshop, participants complete a draft of a detailed proposal outline for a project they may wish to support with grant funds.

For further information, please contact Cathlene Leary-Elderkin, Associate Director for Grants Development and Science Literacy, at 609-896-5000, ext. 7257 or
