UNLV Grant Academy

UNLV Division of Educational Outreach and the UNLV School of Public Policy and Leadership have partnered to offer a Grant Writing Certificate. Students in the program will gain skills in identifying relevant grant opportunities, writing strong proposals, utilizing available data sources to make a convincing case for support, tracking program outcomes, and managing reports to funders. By learning best practices in organization and program management, proposal preparation, and funder relationship management with various federal, local, and philanthropic funding sources, students will learn to discern what distinguishes a winning grant proposal from an unsuccessful one.
