Distinctly Different Grant Writing Training
you get all sorts of offers to take advantage of the latest grants
training, both online and face to face? Are you wondering how Fort Hays State
University’s grant writing certification program is different from the many other opportunities
out there? Here’s how:
- Unlike most grant writing training offered throughout
the United States, this program is provided by a University, rather than
an individual or small company.
Fort Hays State University has been around since 1902, and has been
offering online instruction since the early 1990’s. The academic integrity of the Eight-Week
Granting Writing class is unsurpassed.
- Most training lasts one or two days. This program lasts two months, which
allows you time to more fully integrate information within you.
- Most grant writing seminars hand you a certificate at
the end of the seminar, usually given simply for attendance. There is no check on the information
learned. The certification for the Eight-Week Grant Training class is
performance based, and people who receive the certificate have
demonstrated their grant proposal writing ability. You must score 70% or
higher on a test to receive a certificate.
- Because many professions require employees to receive
Continuing Education Units (CEUs) as part of their professional
development, you will receive 10 CEUs for this training, even if you score
below 70% on the test.
- Most grant writing training is not taught by someone
with a PhD. Your instructor, Dr. Keith Campbell, has his PhD in sociology,
which is the study of society and groups of people. His academic training
combines with his success as a grant proposal writer, consultant, grant
proposal reviewer at the national level and more than 20 years of teaching
grant writing at the university level.
"The content of the course is eminently and immediately practical. Dr. Campbell did an excellent job of personalizing the course. This is no small accomplishment given that it is offered online to students in a variety of disciplines who are spread across the country." - Luke L., VP of a rural hospital in Minnesota
