This is the introductory course of a three part intensive and practical Certificate Program that is designed for grant writing professionals and those who are interested in learning how to locate specific grant funding opportunities, develop strategies for preparing and writing successful grants, and improving their skills in writing and editing grant applications. It will also teach them the skills to effectively bring together a writing team, manage one's time effectively including utilizing a formula for time and page allocations for each section of the grant application process. In addition, it will demonstrate the value of writing from a reviewer’s perspective plus techniques to maximize scoring points to have more successful proposals.
