Could you use some targeted feedback on your Letter of Intent or brief grant proposal? Have you participated in trainings but find you need some individual feedback to fine-tune your draft (one you’re currently working on or one you recently submitted)?
While your colleagues may be helpful (or maybe just too busy), an outside perspective is often exactly what you need to view your work as a funder might.
That’s the idea behind the Feedback Clinic, a safe online space where you will share drafts with your peers and the instructor (a seasoned grant writer with more than 15 years of experience). You will receive individual feedback from multiple people in a short time. Take advantage of this rare opportunity to hear from outside reviewers from the comfort of your own office!
OR…Don’t have a proposal to submit or not comfortable submitting right now? Join us to learn from the one-on-one, detailed feedback on the 2 submitted proposals and share YOUR feedback and suggestions. Learn from others’ successes and challenges (“case studies”), and practice providing analytical feedback. Your insights will add value to the group discussion and hearing others’ different perspectives will add to your own learning process.
At the End of the Clinic:
- If your draft is reviewed, you will walk away with several concrete ideas for how to immediately improve your draft (and edit future ones)
- If you joined us for the Listen/Watch/Comment Only session, you will leave with numerous ideas and insights for your own proposals. Plus you will have practiced supporting your peers in the process.
Here’s what previous attendees had to say about the feedback clinic:
“This was really helpful. I really liked that we got to see what other people had written. It’s helpful to get to read and give feedback on others’ writing – and Dalya’s feedback was wonderful.”
“I thought this was incredibly helpful. This format of seeing other people’s grants in areas that were different from my own and seeing the feedback was just absolutely tremendous.”
“Often, I find myself wanting to dig my eyeballs out with a grapefruit spoon with webinars. This one, however, held my attention throughout and flew by.”
