The objectives of the course are to help students realize the diversity of potential funding opportunities, how to research and identify potential funding sources, addressing guidelines of proposals, matching projects with funding agencies, and to effectively write key elements of a proposal that stand out against scores of competing submissions.

The cost of the course is $195 and it will meet weekly on Monday evenings between March 3rd and April 14th  from 7-9 pm at the Environmental Center, 100 Main Street, Athol.
