This one has a better deadline...

Quite a few sisters are saying the deadlines are too short to apply for, FYI.

Thanks, Ana.

Yes, I know.
But when in doubt about it I would rather post than not post short deadlines.
Why?
a) they also help to show what kind of grants are available (and there are a lot of them!) and
b) closed calls may suggest one could start planning ahead for the next round - since so many calls are recurrent!
Best,
Ana

That's true. I wanted to let you know. I probably won't be sharing the ones with short deadlines anymore, though, because sisters always say they don't have enough time to prepare for them.

Best,

I am currently on sick leave (because I fell at home and broke my left knee-cap) so life is a bit complicated , slow, tiring.
On the other side I have more time to update my monitoring of calls...
Have a great rest of the week too.

I hope you heal soon, dear.

Friendly reminders:
1. Study similar calls (open and closed ones) that interest you to discover what they have in common and how you can think ahead/plan to apply;
2. Prepare/update paperwork (certificates and atests usually required from an organization like yours);
3. Write (baby steps...!) and discuss a project draft - to validate the priorities within your group and to train your grant writing skills.
4. Do not wait to find a call and then start writing your oroposal/project. Start now!!!
5. Visit the World Pulse website >>> My Pulse >>> Resources and use its filters (right upper corner) to find what really suits you.
6; Share the opportunities that may not apply to you but can interest others.
7. Spread the word about your failures and achievements in grant requests - tell these stories too. They will enlighten and inspire the sisterhood.
