Grant Academy

UNLV Division of Educational Outreach and the UNLV School of Environmental and Public Affairs partner to offer a Grant Writing Certificate. Graduates of the program will gain skills in identifying relevant grant opportunities, writing strong proposals, tracking program outcomes, managing financial reports, and utilizing available technologies to best advantage. Samples of completed proposals to various federal, local, and philanthropic funding sources will be used to understand what distinguishes a funded grant proposal from an unsuccessful one. Grant Academy courses begin Spring 2014. Course descriptions, dates, and fees will be made available as soon as they are finalized. To earn the UNLV Grant Academy Certificate, you must complete all seven core courses.
