Western's Professional and Continuing Education (PCE) unit is offering a new certificate program, "A to Z of Grant Writing." The program is conducted online and is comprised of three courses: Grant Writing Basics, Researching Funders for Grant Proposals and Writing a Full Proposal. Each course is six weeks and self-paced with optional in-person, online sessions scheduled. The courses are taught by Western Senior Instructor Dominique Coulet du Gard.
The A to Z of Grant Writing program begins Jan. 11, 2021 and is five months in duration. This non-credit program offers students seven continuing education units (CEUs) – two CEUs from the first and second course and three CEUs from the third course in the series. The course cost varies on time of registration and package, starting at $595 for an individual course and $1,295 for the early bird rate on all three courses.
The current environment has resulted in challenges for many organizations and businesses. This program provides the necessary skillset to seek funding alternatives to assist during these difficult times. Students in the program learn the key components of grant writing, including reading and interpreting funding ethics and guidelines, direction on how to find funds and how to compose and refine an effective grant proposal.
