Throughout the year, GGC hosts a variety of self-paced, online courses designed to assist graduate students with preparing proposals for different funding opportunities. Participation in these courses is voluntary, and the degree to which you engage in assignments is up to you. However, by fully engaging with the course material, participants are able to develop fairly complete drafts of proposals for their grant applications.
As course moderators rather than traditional “instructors,” GradGrants Center staff will comment on the work you submit, identifying areas of concern and helping you to learn more about putting together a competitive application. You get to decide what to do with the feedback we offer.
The GradGrants Center (GGC) "Introduction to Grant Proposal Writing Boot Camp" is an online, Canvas-based course that will help you develop and organize grant proposal essentials for current and future use. The boot camp includes weekly readings and assignments to guide you through the basic principles of grant writing and help you develop a basic draft of a proposal. By the end of the boot camp, participants will have a proposal with the fundamental components of most grants.
