IEEE SIGHT Webinar: Constructing a strong SIGHT project proposal – ¡en español!
June 19 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Preparing high-quality SIGHT proposals is one of the key elements that provides vitality, resource mobilization, and experience reinforcement in IEEE SIGHT groups. Usually, project proposals are rejected for funding because they lack the relevant information and details stated in the Request for Proposals (RFP) or guidelines. Join Mario Aleman and Rosa Mejia as they discuss topics and best practices that will help you prepare successful project proposals. This webinar will be presented in Spanish, as an effort to support SIGHT groups from Region 9.
