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
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.
FUNDAMENTALS OF PROGRAM PLANNING
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.
PROFESSIONAL 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.

* The Grant Institute Certificate in Professional Grant writing
