Grant Writing Seminars

Grant Writing Boot Camp 101 - 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. 

Participants will be introduced to the proposal writing process and walk away with a better understanding of proposal structure, as well as what factors are used to determine whether or not a proposal gets funded.  Participants will be given the opportunity to share personal experiences and participate in interactive exercises to complement the lecture materials.

This course is designed for both the beginner looking for an introduction and the intermediate looking for a refresher course that will strengthen their grant acquisition skills.  

Grant Research Course 201, will address the basics of private foundations, public corporations, local, state and federal government grant research.  This course will teach students a strategic funding research approach that encourages participants to see research not as something they do before they write a proposal, but as an integrated part of the grant seeking process. 

Participants will be exposed to online and database research tools, as well as publications and directories which contain information about foundation, corporation, and government grant opportunities. Focusing on funding sources and basic social science research, this course teaches class participants how to use research as part of an overall strategic communications effort.

Fundamentals of Program Planning & Evaluation 301 - This course is centered around the belief that it's all about the program. This intensive course will teach professional program development essentials and program evaluation.

Most grant writing workshops treat program development and evaluation as separate from the writing of a proposal, this class will teach the relationship between overall program planning and all strategic communication, used in the development of a grant proposal.  This training encourages participants to understand successful program development and to think strategically about funding as an integral part of the overall grant program planning process.
