The institute has been developed to assist novice to experienced proposal writers in drafting complete proposals for submission.
Institute’s Aim and Requirements for Participants:  Participants will leave with a complete, competitive draft. They must commit to attending the plenaries and communicating with their facilitators at least once per day, and to spending most of their institute time during the week writing.
