Capacity Building: Actual Application – Project Overview Support
Join Kiera Killeen-Wolf and Lisa Stepanovic for this pre-application workshop. Several applicants have requested this workshop for guidance on how to answer specific questions in the application form. This interactive workshop will take you through the application with a step-by-step guide on answering the ‘Project Overview’ question (the question with the 1500-word limit). We’ll share tips on how to structure your answer. Then, we’ll open to a Q & A, where the team will be on hand to answer any questions.
This session will cover:
• What’s expected in the 1500 Project Overview question
• How to write a detailed and convincing Project Overview
• How to structure your answer
What else do you need to know?
