   Grant Funding USA's Grant Funding and  Proposal Writing Essentials
   Course  is an intensive and detailed introduction to the process,
   structure, and skill of professional proposal writing. This course is
   characterized by its ability to act as a thorough overview,
   introduction, and refresher at the same time. In this course,
   participants will learn the entire proposal writing process and
   complete the course with a solid understanding of not only the ideal
   proposal structure, but a holistic understanding of the essential
   factors, which determine whether or not a program gets funded. Through
   the completion of interactive exercises and activities, participants
   will complement expert lectures by putting proven techniques into
   practice. This course is designed for both the beginner looking for a
   thorough introduction and the intermediate looking for a refresher
   course that will strengthen their grant acquisition skills. This class,
   simply put, is designed to get results by creating professional grant
   proposal writers.

   Participants will become competent program planning and proposal
   writing professionals after successful completion of the Grant Funding
   and  Proposal Writing Essentials Course.  In three active and
   informative days, students will be exposed to the art of successful
   grant writing practices, and led on a journey that ends with a
   masterful grant proposal.

   The Grant Funding and  Proposal Writing Essentials Course consists of
   three (3) subject areas that will be completed during the three-day

   (1) Fundamentals of Program Planning

   This session is centered on the belief that "it's all about the
   program." This intensive session will teach professional program
   development essentials and program evaluation. While most grant writing
   "workshops" treat program development and evaluation as separate from
   the writing of a proposal, this class will teach students the
   relationship between overall program planning and grant writing.

   (2) Proposal Writing Essentials

   Designed for both the novice and experienced grant writer, this
   component will make each student an overall proposal writing
   specialist. In addition to teaching the basic components of a grant
   proposal, successful approaches, and the do's and don'ts of grant
   writing, this course is infused with expert principles that will lead
   to a mastery of the process. Strategy resides at the forefront of this
   course's intent to illustrate grant writing as an integrated,
   multidimensional, and dynamic endeavor. Each student will learn to stop
   writing the grant and to start writing the story. Ultimately, this
   class will illustrate how each component of the grant proposal
   represents an opportunity to use proven techniques for generating

   (3) Funding Research

   At its foundation, this course will address the basics of foundation,
   corporation, and government grant research. However, this course will
   teach a strategic funding research approach that encourages students to
   see research not as something they do before they write a proposal, but
   as an integrated part of the grant seeking process. Students will be
   exposed to online and database research tools, as well as publications
   and directories that contain information about foundation, corporation,
   and government grant opportunities. Focusing on funding sources and
   basic social science research, this course teaches students how to use
   research as part of a strategic grant acquisition effort.
