College Offers Essential Grants Skills Workshop

ELIZABETH – Union County College will host an Essential Grants Skills Workshop presented by the Grantsmanship Center on Nov. 1-2 at the Elizabeth Kellogg Building on the Elizabeth Campus.

The Essential Grant Skills Workshop will give you an overview of the entire grants process, with in-depth emphasis on the key areas where even experienced grant professionals often stumble. Knowing how to identify and overcome these hurdles is crucial to your success.

Newcomers to the field will receive a solid, credible orientation to grants work, get grounded in the most important planning and proposal writing concepts, tools, and procedure, and avoid months of trial and error by starting out on the right track and steering clear of the most common pitfalls. Working grants professionals will refresh and update their most critical skill sets and strengthen their ability to address a wide range of grant opportunities. Participating organizations will get a head start on future grants.

The agenda for the two-day workshop includes an orientation to the art of grants work, an in-depth examination of the four elements most likely to make or break a grant application—the same areas where even experienced grant professionals can falter. Attendees will learn to identify and articulate client-based or community-based needs and problems, define measurable program outcomes, identify and articulate methods to logically achieve those outcomes, and establish their organizational credibility.

Tuition for this workshop is $445. After completing Essential Grant Skills, you will have access to The Grantsmanship Center’s Alumni Membership Web Site for six months, as part of the course tuition.
