THE GRANT INSTITUTE
Certificate in Professional Program Development and Grant Communication
to be held at the
University of Baltimore
February 5 – 9, 2007
8:00 AM – 5:00 PM
William H. Thummel Sr. Business Center, Room BC 221
The Grant Institute: Certificate in Professional Program Development and Grant Communication is a five-day intensive and interactive experience in which participants will be led through the program development, grant writing, and funding acquisition processes through the completion of four courses. The Grant Institute is not a seminar. Participants will actively engage in exercises and activities designed to strengthen their mastery of grant acquisition. Through the completion of varying assignments, students will leave The Grant Institute with a real grant proposal outline complete with quality research, solid content, and expert review. The Grant Institute focuses on combining the fundamentals of grant proposal writing with expert knowledge of communication principles such as Strategic Research, Persuasion, Argumentation, and Framing.
The Grant Institute trainers and consultants do not merely lecture participants, but act as personal consultants and coaches dedicated to encouraging participants to succeed beyond their own expectations. While The Grant Institute uses collaboration and small groups for many exercises, each participant will work on their organization’s project. Participants are not overwhelmed with negativity or discouragement, but will be given the highest level of expertise to generate confidence in pursuing any funding project.
At The Grant Institute, participants don’t just learn to write grant proposals from top to bottom. Participants become specialists in our unique area of expertise: Grant Communication. Simply put, this is not your grandfather’s grantwriting workshop. Our graduates are strategic, innovative, and confident. Whether you are new to professional grantwriting, or an experienced professional, you will not want to miss The Grant Institute.
