The course is designed for intending and practicing social change-makers and non-profit executives. It is focused on developing grant-writing skills essential to acquiring competitive funding from government agencies and private foundations. Writing a successful grant proposal is not a superpower and consists of amenable skills to scientific research and experiential learning. It requires basic know-how, subject knowledge, writing proficiency, basic research skills, creativity, organizational ability, patience, and, sadly, luck. Fortunately, you would have honed your grant application skills and created a full grant proposal ready for submission by the end of this instructional course.
The course is facilitated by Professor Jesse Lutabingwa (Associate Vice Chancellor, Office of International Education and Development, Appalachian State University, Boone, North Carolina, U.S.A), Segun Fatudimu (Impact Toolbox) and Omotola Akinsola (Lead Consultant at The Funding Magnet).
