In this session, we'll start with a look at where we are in the federal budget process, honing in on the US Department of Education. We'll also review trends observed based on previous fiscal years in relation to the current political climate. Significant time will be spent covering anticipated grant programs (no less than 5) that support a variety of education initiatives (e.g. literacy, STEM, distance learning, afterschool programs) from various federal agencies. Anticipated funding priorities, award amounts, & deadlines will be reviewed for each grant discussed. To conclude, 10 tips for writing a successful grant proposal will be offered to increase the likelihood of successful future grant submissions by attendees.
