One of the most important parts of creating great work is finding the funds to do so. National Geographic Society will host a workshop designed to improve your grant writing skills, providing tips and tricks to write a successful proposal. Come ready with an idea you hope to submit as a potential grant. The session will be led by Rachael Strecher, Director of Storytelling Grants & Fellowship, National Geographic Society.
Rachael Strecher is Director of Storytelling Grants and Fellowships at the National Geographic Society, where she leads grant making to support photographers, writers, film makers, data visualization experts, cartographers and other storytellers. Prior to her time at National Geographic, she launched and ran the Aspen Institute’s New Voices Fellowship, a program designed to bring expert voices from the developing world into the global development discussion. Rachael began her career as a photojournalist in the Middle East, where she covered stories for the Associated Press and other outlets. She has a particular interest in innovative media and expanding the roster of who tells the world’s stories.
