About this course

Are you securing funding for your upcoming research, conference attendance or field trip? Maybe you've already identified the perfect funding opportunity through our "Finding Funding Opportunities" course and crafted a compelling application using insights from our "Persuasive Grant Writing" course.

Before you finalise and submit your grant application, there's one crucial task left – creating a budget that outlines how you'll use the requested funding. But what expenses qualify and what costs should you consider?

In this webinar recording, funding expert Riana Coetsee shares practical strategies on getting out of starting blocks with your grant budget, including an overview of your usual budget items, a budget narrative and insights on what information funders want to see.
