      April 11 - 13, 2005

      The Grant Institute's Grants 101 Course is an intensive and detailed
      introduction to the process, structure, and skill of professional
      proposal writing. This course is characterized by its ability to act as
      a thorough overview, introduction, and refresher at the same time. In
      this course, participants will learn the entire proposal writing process
      and complete the course with a solid understanding of not only the ideal
      proposal structure, but a holistic understanding of the essential
      factors, which determine whether or not a program gets funded. Through
      the completion of interactive exercises and activities, participants
      will complement expert lectures by putting proven techniques into
      practice. This course is designed for both the beginner looking for a
      thorough introduction and the intermediate looking for a refresher
      course that will strengthen their grant acquisition skills. This class,
      simply put, is designed to get results by creating professional grant
      proposal writers.

      Participants will become competent program planning and proposal writing
      professionals after successful completion of the Grants 101 course. In
      three active and informative days, students will be exposed to the art
      of successful grant writing practices, and led on a journey that ends
      with a masterful grant proposal.

      Grants 101 consists of three (3) courses that will be completed during
      the three-day workshop.


      This course is centered on the belief that "it's all about the program."
      This intensive course will teach professional program development
      essentials and program evaluation. While most grant writing "workshops"
      treat program development and evaluation as separate from the writing of
      a proposal, this class will teach students the relationship between
      overall program planning and grant writing.


      Designed for both the novice and experienced grant writer, this course
      will make each student an overall proposal writing specialist. In
      addition to teaching the basic components of a grant proposal,
      successful approaches, and the do's and don'ts of grant writing, this
      course is infused with expert principles that will lead to a mastery of
      the process. Strategy resides at the forefront of this course's intent
      to illustrate grant writing as an integrated, multidimensional, and
      dynamic endeavor. Each student will learn to stop writing the grant and
      to start writing the story. Ultimately, this class will illustrate how
      each component of the grant proposal represents an opportunity to use
      proven techniques for generating support.


      At its foundation, this course will address the basics of foundation,
      corporation, and government grant research. However, this course will
      teach a strategic funding research approach that encourages students to
      see research not as something they do before they write a proposal, but
      as an integrated part of the grant seeking process. Students will be
      exposed to online and database research tools, as well as publications
      and directories that contain information about foundation, corporation,
      and government grant opportunities. Focusing on funding sources and
      basic social science research, this course teaches students how to use
      research as part of a strategic grant acquisition effort.


      $597.00 tuition includes all materials and certificates.

      Each student will receive:

      * The Grant Institute Certificate in Professional Grant writing

      * The Grant Institute's Guide to Successful Grant Writing

      * A to Z Grant Writing
