Preflight Grantsmanship 

 Certification Series


The Preflight Grantsmanship Certification Series is a free learning resource designed for educators or researchers who are interested in writing a grant proposal for the first time.  This training focuses on taking the participant through the process of transforming experience, expertise, and interests into a concept summary for beginning the full writing process. The five sequenced modules equip participants with a foundation for finding the right grant, engaging a team of collaborators, and starting the grant writing process. The topics addressed in this series include: developing fundable ideas, understanding the current landscape for grant funding, finding the right grant, crafting a problem statement, finding a mentor, and forming a writing team.

Certification for this program requires completion of two deliverables: 1) The Preflight Grantsmanship Self-Assessment, and 2) The Executive/Concept Summary. The training is designed as a self-guided and self-paced modular series.  Once the two deliverables are successfully submitted at the end of the learning experience, a Certificate of Training will be issued by the HSI STEM Hub to the participant.  Questions regarding this series can be addressed to [email protected].
