Presenter: Jo Garner

Director, Strategic Grants by the Australian Centre for Philanthropy and Non-profit Studies, QUT


Target audience: 20-25 Researchers who will in the future be preparing grant proposals to philanthropic funders. 

The half day workshop will focus on:

  • The grants landscape – who are the funders, what are their expectations, review of different guidelines and examples of research projects that have received philanthropic funding. This will also include samples of feedback from funders.
  • Ensuring your project is “grant ready”. We will go through a project information template that contains key headings that researchers should be able to respond to, when applying for philanthropic funding. If there is missing information, the project is not grant ready (and may not be suitable for grant funding).
  • Writing a strong application. We will go through general writing rules and look at samples of different research funding application forms from philanthropic funders.
