The Grantsmanship Center® Half-Scholarships

We know that some smaller organizations doing great work struggle to fit training into their budget, no matter how much they need or want it. So The Grantsmanship Center provides a limited number of half-scholarships for every Grantsmanship Training Program® and Essential Grant Skills training we offer to the public.

Recipients must be working with a nonprofit organization that has: 1) an IRS designation as a 501(c)(3) organization, and 2) a budget of $750,000 or less. A seat will be secured only after we receive payment. If another applicant is approved and pays before you, you could miss this opportunity.

Sorry, these scholarships are not available to individuals or to organizations that are based outside of the United States.
