Show Me the Money! A Guide to and through Grant-Seeking Databases 

Two-hour introduction to grant-seeking databases: PivotCOS, GrantSelect, and Grant Advisor Plus.

Attendees will have opportunities to access databases and engage in searches related to their topic of interest.

Learn basic strategies and skills to successfully develop and submit competitive corporate, foundation, state, and federal proposals.
