In the current economic environment, to get more bang for their buck many sponsors “strongly encourage,” if not outright require, collaboration in grant applications. The benefits of collaborating are many, but well-intended grant collaborations don’t always turn out as planned. Or worse, a private foundation awards grant funding to a “phantom collaboration,” a proposed partnership that exists in name only.
In this webinar you will learn 3½ secrets for success when sponsors require collaboration on grant projects. You will learn key factors that determine whether grant collaborations produce precious “wins” or painful “losses.” You will learn about different types of collaborations and essential characteristics of grant leaders that contribute to success when managing people and projects. You will also learn tips for integrating the concept of collaboration throughout your proposals and see actual comments from grant reviewers who evaluated collaborative proposals.
