Those working with nonprofits, public and private schools, government agencies and many other organizations across all disciplines and proficiency levels can sharpen their grant-writing skills with a two-day workshop in Gainesville, Florida, Dec. 3 and 4.
Hosted by Lubee Bat Conservancy and sponsored by Grant Writing USA, the event producers are currently offering various discount programs, including a special $425 tuition rate for Gainesville Chamber of Commerce members [use discount code “FLNPO”], multi-enrollment discounts and special rates for Grant Writing USA alumni. Tuition, which will include all materials, is not required up front.
Course content includes an overview, administration and management, legalities, financial methodology and more. The event includes instruction, discussion, tools, sample grants and free access to the valuable Alumni Forum, where participants can ask questions of, and exchange ideas with, experienced grant recipients.
Attendees are not required to work in the same industry as workshop host agencies, and continuing education and university credits are available for completing the program.
Individuals or groups with current government grants can also attend an upcoming Daytona Beach grant management class slated for Aug. 18 to 19, 2016, offering instructions on administering government grants and staying in compliance with regulations to satisfy auditors and sponsors.
