OPA will review the final list of participants for each workshop before they are notified of their selection.It is the obligation of the applicant to ensure that workshop participants’ information about themselves, their experience in the workshop, and/or their project ideas are shared and publicized on social media platforms of the BOLD network so that others can see their leadership examples and be motivated by their experience in the workshop.For more information, visit https://www.grants.gov/web/grants/view-opportunity.html?oppId=331043
