Grant Writer Certificate Program

Raising capital is an essential part of any sustainable nonprofit business model. Success depends on the ability to effectively fundraise, forge positive donor relationships, and compose persuasive grant proposals.

A successful grant proposal is more than an excellent scientific research idea. The idea needs to be conveyed in a clear and compelling manner with realistic objectives, state-of-the-art methodology and a well-structured work plan and budget. Also, you must present yourself as the best person to carry out the research idea.

This course teaches you how to optimally convey your research idea to funding agencies and reviewers, and to maximize your chances of success.
