Evaluation Comments

“I now understand NAGPRA at a whole new level. The seminar was very intensive, in depth, and easy to understand. The instructors presented valuable information on NAGPRA grant-writing basics. The training was well organized and very informative.”
 
“The seminar exceeded expectations. I have never written a grant, but am willing to try now.”
 
“I feel like I have a solid project to take back to my institution to further not only NAGPRA goals, but overall consultation with tribal representatives.”
 
“It helped to understand how to narrow grant expectations to a manageable project and the importance of keywords to use and not use. I was very happy with the seminar. I learned a lot.”

“This seminar exceeded my expectations in many ways. The best thing was the procedures and process for applying for a NAGPRA grant.”
