The Grant Institute

Grants 101: Professional Grant Proposal Writing Workshop

will be held at the University of Phoenix - Columbus Campus

Columbus, Ohio

June 2 - 4, 2008

8:00 AM - 5:00 PM


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 proposal writers.


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.


(1) 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.


(2) 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.


(3) Grant Research


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.


Each student will receive:

*The Grant Institute Certificate in Professional Grant Writing

*The Grant Institute's Guide to Successful Grant Writing

*The Grant Institute Grant Writer's Workbook with sample proposals, 
forms, and outlines
