The Certificate Program in Grantsmanship will provide you with practical skills to develop and write grant proposals as well as manage the grant projects effectively once your grant comes in.
You will learn about researching and applying for grants, how to develop a creative idea, locate the right funding source, and write an effective proposal. In addition to grant writing, you will also learn practical strategies for managing your project, keeping it on time and on budget, developing appropriate reporting methods, and dealing effectively with others who are involved in the project. Electives will be offered to enable you to enhance your grant writing and fundraising skills.
