April 30, 2020 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm
Seeing grant opportunities here, there and everywhere? Wondering how you can (potentially), get yourself a piece of the pie?
Grant writing can appear overwhelming at first glance, but our industry experts are here to break it down for you step-by-step, covering the essentials of applying for funding and how to acquit it if you are successful!
You’ll be hearing from a panel of experts, with the opportunity to ask them questions at the end of the presentation via the stream comments.
