Upward Bound Proposal Writing Webinar

Part of the ASPIRE Regional Conference, Pre-Con. Offering
Sponsored by ASPIRE (Virtual)

Friday, August 6th, 2021


8-5 p.m. Mountain Time – 9-6 p.m. Central Time 

Join the ASPIRE Proposal Writing Team of Andrea Reeve, Amy Verlanic and Maria Zavala for a one-day grant proposal writing preparation workshop. The workshop is part of the ASPIRE Regional Conference, Pre-Con!

The workshop will review all the known proposal selection criteria from the Upward Bound Program Regulations plus thoughts about program design and framework, submitting through grants.gov, incorporating best practices, and potential inclusion of competitive preference priorities and a logic model. If you’ve already started the writing process, the workshop will provide a good review and checklist of where you should be; if you’re beginning to write, the workshop will help you set timelines and what needs to be accomplished. If the Department of Education has issued a draft or final RFP, we will base the workshop on that RFP. If nether has been issued, we’ll use the 2016-17 versions as guidelines.

ASPIRE will offer draft proposal reviews for up to three sections of a grant proposal for an additional fee of $100. Additional information regarding reviewers and needed sections will be provided at the workshop.

If you need additional assistance, and would like to hire a grant writing consultant to help you write your Upward Bound grant, below is a list of ‘COE approved’ grant writers.

Amy Verlanic, Bill Clarke, Cherryl Arnold, Donna Thompson, Heath Alexander, Jana Hexter, Jennifer Perdue and Sebastian Myrick.
