Training Scholarships - 2024
 

Successful grant proposals are about much more than just writing. The Grantsmanship Center training helps organizations focus on program planning, developing logical and compelling proposals, mastering powerful research tools, and building partnerships to increase impact.

Training participants learn how to find funders who are most likely to support their work. And then, after clear-eyed analysis of their programs, participants learn how to explain exactly what they plan to do to make stronger, more vibrant communities.

Well-organized applications, using solid data combined with inspiring narrative, submitted to well-selected grantmakers, have the best chance of success. This comprehensive approach is at the heart of The Grantsmanship Center’s proven training.

A limited number of full scholarships are available for The Grantsmanship Center's

Grantsmanship Training Program - Online (5-Day)

The Grantsmanship Center’s acclaimed Grantsmanship Training Program - Online is an immersive experience delivered virtually, live over 5 days with eight learning events to help participants find new ways to tell their organization’s story, and complete the course with a draft proposal.

During this training, participants research actual funding sources (government, private, and corporate) for their programs using the GrantStation database. Participants leave the program with a list of appropriate funders and the skills to research funders independently. Participants also learn to identify and create the eight components of a successful proposal by using the Center's model for their own organization or project. Then, working in small teams, participants create real grant proposals for their own or a teammate's organization.

Once proposals are completed, the trainer leads constructive and supportive proposal reviews helping participants understand how a funder will view their work. Participants complete this training with tangible work product, including their own workbook as well as copies of all of the proposals drafted and reviewed in class.

Essential Grant Skills - Online (2-Day)

The Grantsmanship Center’s Essential Grant Skills - Online training is a distilled version of the 5-day Grantsmanship Training Program, covering the same core content, also delivered in an interactive format, but the shorter timeframe means there are fewer applications of the concepts. Participants draft essential sections of a grant proposal for their own organization or project using The Grantsmanship Center's Model. The e-notebook is loaded with resources and complements the class textbook, Grantsmanship: Program Planning & Proposal Writing. Delivery combines presentation, discussion, and exercises for lively, meaningful learning. Participants also take away tangible work product including the workbook used during class for their own project.

This training offers an understanding of key concepts for those new to the field and an opportunity to enhance skills for more experienced grant developers.

Grant Management Essentials - Online (2-Day)

The Grantsmanship Center’s Grant Management Essentials - Online training is a two-day grant management workshop in which participants get the skills and know-how to keep their projects on track, comply with grant regulations, and protect their organizations from the administrative and legal chaos that results from poor grants management.

Beyond just presentation and discussion, participants engage in hands-on grant management exercises and review their work in class to learn the most current, practical information in the field. Participants also receive an e-notebook richly filled with resources.

Learn Grant Proposal Development from A to Z! Learn how the grant process works so you can translate the passion for your mission into a compelling argument for funding. This training is ideal for government agencies and non-profit organizations seeking federal, foundation and corporate funding.

Then, working in small teams, participants create real grant proposals for their own or a teammate's organization.

Once proposals are completed, the trainer leads constructive and supportive proposal reviews helping participants understand how a funder will view their work. Participants complete this training with tangible work product, including their own workbook as well as copies of all of the proposals drafted and reviewed in class.
