Troy University to hold grant writing workshops

Posted: Monday, 21 February 2011

DOTHAN—Individuals and organizations can learn more about the process of grant writing during a series of workshops at Troy University starting in March.

The Dothan Campus Continuing Education Center will host Introduction to Grant Writing on Wednesday, March 2, from 9 a.m. to noon. The two-part Advanced Grant Writing course will be held on March 23 and March 30.

The introductory class will provide an overview of grant development and the process of grant writing. Participants will learn how to locate funding sources, basic grant writing tips and how to avoid common mistakes.

Advanced Grant Writing will help participants prepare for the commitment required as an organization to get a grant funded. In addition to advanced training in how to find funds and write grant proposals, participants will learn how to accurately reflect a proposed budget, common components that need to be included in a grant and what to do if the organization does not get funded.

Courtney E. Purvis, assistant director of TROY’s Center for International Business and Economic Development, will teach the classes.

Registration is $99 for the introductory class and $129 for both sessions of the advanced class. All course materials are included in the fee.
