Tips and Techniques in Effective Grant Writing

SJSU ASIST Student Chapter and ASIST SIG ED are excited to present the second grant writing webinar with Patty Wong. Intended as a follow up to the successful April event, in this session attendees can learn more effective grant writing techniques to leverage success in the research administration office and across the institution.

Patty Wong will cover building an internal grants team, identification of the best funder, analyzing funder data including the IRS 990 form, working with a program officer, and much more. There will be adequate time for questions and additional follow up materials made available on the SJSU ASIST website, to support ongoing engagement.
