This highly acclaimed two-day writing workshop is designed specifically to address the next cycle of the Magnet Schools Assistance Program (MSAP) Grant.

Sessions will focus on the different components of the application, giving you plenty of time to do a deep dive on each area. These sessions will take place just in time to help you start preparing, because as we have said many times before, it is never too soon to begin lining everything up for the application.


After the MSAP application notice is posted,
MSA will host a MSAP Roundtable for registered attendees (live/on-demand).
