  1. I attended the Grant Writing Workshop on Wed.
    It was very good and Ken did a wonderful job of addressing everyone's point of view [Beginners - Experienced Grant writers]. He was very generous about sharing tips and thoughts about Grant writing that he has accumulated over the years. Thanks Ken!

  2. Thanks, Seema. It was a pleasure to have you in the class - and thank you for the testimonial!
