Measuring Success Beyond the Grant: Question Preview for 7/8

Measuring Success Beyond the Grant

This week we are chatting about measuring success! Our roles as Grants Professionals are complicated. Furthermore, grant applications are becoming more complicated and there are more applicants competing for fewer funds. Case in point, the NIH just reported a historic low in application success. Overall, grant application success rates are declining. How do we, as Grant Professionals, measure our success? How do we set realistic expectations for our clients, Boards, bosses, programs and partners? It is going to be an informative and lively discussion. Please join us Tuesday, July 8 at Noon E.T.
