Grant Writing 103: Becoming a Grant Reviewer
Tuesday, May 22, 2018, 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM
Sharon Woods Metro Park, Spring Hollow Lodge 1069 W. Main St., Westerville, OH 43081

One of the best ways to improve your grant writing skills is to review proposals from other organizations. In this workshop, the Ohio Environmental Education Fund (OEEF) will share examples of successful grant proposals and show what sets one environmental education project above another.

In this three-hour interactive workshop, you will:

  • Get a funder’s perspective on what makes a winning application
  • Compare weak and strong proposals side-by-side
  • Practice scoring online applications using OEEF’s preferred characteristics for environmental education projects
  • Learn about OEEF and Ohio EPA’s online Grants Management System
  • Become certified as an OEEF volunteer peer reviewer

To register, email jeffrey.montavon@epa.ohio.gov by Friday, May 18.
