This interactive and practical 3-day training program is designed for those who seek to acquire the knowledge and practice the skills necessary to succeed in today's competitive grant writing environment. This program is specifically designed for those who are not grant writing professionals and who have little or no experience in grant writing.
Experienced grant writer Jule Colvin teaches best practices for developing successful grant proposals, along with hands on exercises in the development of agency and program budgets. This class includes tips on how to identify and analyze funding resources for programs and projects, approach funding sources well in advance, how to be ready once the deadline is looming and what to do once you've been awarded a grant. In addition, you will receive individualized feedback from local grant professionals to enhance your learning experience along with a Certificate in Grant Writing toward your professional development.
All sessions require students to have their own personal computer. During the budget session, we will be using spreadsheets (Excel); familiarity with the personal computer environment, creating documents in Word and Excel is highly recommended as a prerequisite for this program. Students must complete all 3 sessions and all assignments and pass section tests to receive their certificate.
