Grant writing 101: boot camp edition (Online)

NEW Grant Writing Course - ONLINE!

The art of grant writing is a skill that can be acquired over time and the good news is that MOST people can learn how to successfully write a winning proposal.

Most of the training around this topic is offered in brief sessions. From a couple of hours in a day to several hours over a couple of days, you can find a grant writing workshop that fits somewhere along that spectrum.

But it’s not the amount of time you spend in training that will assure you gain the necessary skills to be successful. It’s the quality of the content that is packed into that time that makes the greatest difference. When you’re provided with the right information, the right tools, AND the right instructor you’ll get the right results.

Greater Vision Consulting has combined all three of those core components to offer Grant Writing 101: Boot Camp Edition. We’ve developed an INTENSE 8-hour, four week, online course that will equip you with not only the information, but also the hands-on writing experience to increase your confidence in your ability to put together a convincing proposal. By the end of this course  you will have a proposal in hand. 

This course includes LIVE instruction. You will not  be watching pre-recorded videos only like most online courses. 

This course will cover the following (5 of the 9) Grant Professional Certification (GPC) competencies and skills required to be an effective grant professional.    

GPC Competencies and Skills:

  • Research and matching funding sources
