About this course
Proposal writing requires not only strong writing skills but also project management knowledge and experience. Many people under-estimate the expertise and maturity of senior proposal evaluators when they write their proposals. If the proposal does not provide a logical well-supported argument, donors are unlikely to be convinced with it, and could deny the organization the support opportunity.
From this standpoint, it is important to highlight not only the language skills required to better secure the opportunity, but also the depth of the subject matter and the knowledge of proposal writer of the project for which funding is required.
