The aim of this course is to support creative individuals through the process of applying for funding for their ideas step by step. This full-day course is a condensed version of the three-week workshop course that cover the following areas:
- Introduction to Funding, developing your idea into a project.
- Communicating your idea and project clearly, ensuring you have all the information you require to complete an application.
- Writing an application, we will look at each section of a funding application in turn and discuss the type of information you should be including.
After the workshop participants will be given a one-to-one 30-minute phone discussion about your project idea/ application with the course leader if you require it.
The course is suitable for those who may have submitted applications for funding with limited success, have never submitted an application or those who have been successful but looking to apply for more ambitious projects.
There are only ten places available to ensure focused sessions.
The course will be delivered by Jennifer McGlone, and includes lunch.
