OCC Offers Class on Writing Grant Proposals

AUBURN HILLS — Oakland Community College Continuing Education will present “Grantsmanship:  Keys to Writing Successful Grant Applications,” a 12-hour class for both novice and experienced grant seekers, which combines expert instruction with hands-on practice grant writing and proposal critiques.

Course instructor Sue Southon has written federal, state and foundation grants resulting in awards exceeding $45 million. She has served as a trainer for the International Economic Development Chronicle, the Professional Certification Program, the Economic Development Institute and the National Association of Workforce Boards.

Participants will learn how to identify the steps in the grant writing process, determine “fit” between funders and organizations, understand the common elements of a grant proposal and how to develop responses, draft and edit a grant, and find grant sources.  In addition, an outline of the grant writing process, including steps to the final proposal, will be provided.

“Grantsmanship” will be presented on two successive Saturdays, March 2 and 9, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at OCC’s Auburn Hills Campus.

The course fee is $299.
