Pre-Application Course Curriculum
This pre-recorded course consists of three training days:
- Day 1 will cover an Introduction to ANA, the Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOA), and an overview of the Scoring Criteria.
- Day 2 will delve into the ANA Project Framework and key terminology. It will focus primarily on the Approach section of the Scoring Criteria.
- Day 3 will continue where the previous day left off. It will also cover the Organizational Capacity and Budget sections of the Scoring Criteria.
To complete this course, you should plan to view each training Day (1, 2, and 3) at least once. But do pause the video, rewind, and refresh the concepts in your mind as you go along!
