NPC sponsors grant writing for non-profits workshop

Northland Pioneer College will be offering another grant writing for non-profits workshop at the Snowflake/Taylor-Silver Creek Campus on Mondays and Wednesdays, for four sessions, April 14-23, from 6-10 p.m. on both days. There is no tuition charge, just a $100 course fee.

When the grant writing workshop was offered in February, there was a waiting list of individuals wanting to learn the techniques for writing a successful grant proposal. This April session is intended to help fill the requests for this popular non-credit workshop.

"The workshop provides the fundamentals of preparing a grant proposal, including conducting a funding search, contacting prospective funders, organizing, writing and submitting the proposal. We'll also cover how to follow up with the prospective funder once the grant is submitted," said instructor Betsyann Wilson. "This workshop is geared toward grant writing for non-profits. I don't teach people how to get money to start their own business. That's the specialty of the college's Small Business Development Center."

This workshop has proven very useful to educators, librarians and others seeking outside funding sources for projects or research. Wilson has authored and co-authored several funded grants for NPC, including a National Science Foundation grant to recruit science and math students.
