Applying For Federal Grants: 2015

This SBIR/STTR Introductory Workshop will provide a discussion of (1) The Essentials of Federal Funding For Small Businesses and (2) Key Criteria That Reviewers Look For In Evaluating Proposals. The workshop will begin with a comprehensive introduction to SBIR and STTR grants, their distinguishing characteristics, participating agency program differences, basic application structures (Phases I – III), eligibility criteria, the registration and application process, and key updates for 2015. By attending this workshop, you will learn the application process, all pertinent documents with the general application package, and the peer review process: how it works, the scoring and ranking systems and grant-writing essentials. You will develop an understanding of grant proposal reviewer behavior and process for evaluating proposals. Within a peer interactive workshop program, you will learn how to meet six (6) criteria including an "Overall Proposal Impact" used by reviewers to evaluate and score/rank their proposals. You will learn how the review criteria relates to your personal proposal application and how you should write your proposal for success by meeting each criteria. You will get views from the "inside" on elevating your chances for success in obtaining SBIR and STTR funds.
