Still Time to Register for Grant Writing Workshops

RELEASED: Feb. 16, 2006

EAU CLAIRE — University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Continuing Education will present three grant writing workshops beginning in March. Participants may take one workshop, or complete all three to earn a Grant Writing Certificate (non-credit). The programs are designed for staff of non-profit organizations, educators from private and public schools, health care professionals, those involved in the arts or human/social services, and others interested in learning how to raise funds through effective grant writing. All programs will be held from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on the UW-Eau Claire campus. Following are program descriptions:

  • "Introduction to Grant Writing for Small to Medium Sized Grants" — March 23 in McIntyre Library, Room 2023B. This program covers funding sources and what they look for in grants, as well as the basic structure of a grant proposal. Presenter Jack Bushnell is a professor of English at UW-Eau Claire with more than twelve years of experience writing proposals in the private and public sector.
  • "Assessment: The Backbone of Successful Grants" — April 27 in Hibbard Hall, Room 179. This program covers the vital components and benefits of assessment, identifying what drives a proposed project and how to customize an appropriate assessment plan to a grant proposal. Presenter Patricia Quinn directs the Ronald E. McNair Post Baccalaureate Achievement Program and serves as special assistant for external funding to the associate vice chancellor for Student Development and Diversity at the UW-Eau Claire.
  • "Grant Management: What to Do Once You Have the Money!" — June 13 in McIntyre Library, Room 2023B. This program deals with grant management issues from the grant award through the final reports. Participant questions and needs from past grant awards or current grant proposals will be addressed. Presenter Joe Hisrich oversaw the management of six major grants and more than 25 program-specific grants as the grants manager for Academic and Career Services at UW-Eau Claire. Since retiring from the university, he has conducted grant evaluations and audits for a number of government and private grant programs.

The fee is $155 per course. A discounted fee of $425, which includes materials and instruction, is available for those registering for all three courses at the same time.
