The course is designed for both intending and practicing social entrepreneurs. It is focused on developing effective grant writing skills that are essential to the acquisition of competitive funding from government agencies and private foundations. Writing a successful grant proposal is not a superpower and consists of skills that are amenable to scientific research and experiential learning. It requires basic know-how, content knowledge, writing proficiency, basic research skills, creativity, organizational ability, patience, and sadly, luck. Luckily, by the end of this instructional course, you would have created a full grant proposal ready for submission.
45 of 100 past learners surveyed have raised over $1 000 000.
The recorded class videos are very explanatory and provide answers to class questions; some of the kind of questions you may have would most likely be asked and answered in the videos.
Contribute to the discussions through the comment session below every lesson, submit your assignments, and provide answers to your colleagues’ questions in the community. Visit the community regularly, where answers to your questions are either already in the thread or other participants and moderators are ready to provide you with answers.
Enjoy the course.
What stood out for me was how actually easy to comprehend the teachings were. Hands-on assignments with timelines. The practical lectures and how I could use them in my daily living. I learnt how to really think deeply and realistically about events around me. It also helped me think of a project with the end in mind and its resultant effect on the desired audience. – Anita Ike
The experience has been awesome; I got to learn so much. Now I feel I can apply for any grant by just going through the notes and key points. I also decided to edit all the current proposals for the grant I am working on. What has been most striking for me is how the modules were well related and easy to understand. I really wished the classroom session will continue. – Lola Ogunnubi.
