The Grant Proposal Certificate Program is a two-day workshop that helps participants identify potential grantmakers, learn the elements of writing successful grant proposals, prepare a draft of their proposal including a logic model, and become a grant reviewer. These workshops are ideal for both the novice and intermediate grant seeker. Within a short period of time, participants hone their grant seeking skills. All participants are asked to bring an idea for a project or program in need of funding. Workshops in this series combine lecture, discussion, and hands-on learning.
