Grant Writing Certificate Program
A Grant Writing Certificate Program will be offered Monday through Friday, Sept. 30– Oct. 4, 9 a.m.–4 p.m., at the University of Maine Hutchinson Center. Nonprofit leaders, executive directors, municipal officials, board members and others interested in creating high-quality grant proposals for their organizations are invited to register. This is an intensive program and participants are encouraged to come with an anticipated grant in mind or one that has already been started. Participants can expect to walk away with a well vetted grant proposal.
Course instructor Jack Smith, M.P.A., has a master of public administration degree from the University of Maine and over 25 years of experience in the nonprofit and public sector. He has taught over 1,500 grant writing programs in his career, and currently teaches grant writing certificate programs at the Hutchinson Center, University of Southern Maine, Emory University, University of Georgia and Austin Center for Nonprofit Studies.
The grant writing program provides an intensive opportunity to acquire the knowledge and practice the skills necessary to succeed in today’s competitive grant writing environment. Participants will proceed step-by-step through the development of a proposal, identifying and evaluating the most appropriate funding sources, researching a problem, and supplying the documentation and statistics necessary for supporting a successful grant proposal.
The cost of the five-day program is $750. Need-based scholarships are available. Participants will earn a University of Maine certificate in grant writing; 3.0 CEUs/30 contact hours are also available. For more information or to register online, visit hutchinsoncenter.umaine.edu
