Student Testimonial: 

"Happy I took the time to invest in myself, by enrolling in the Grant Writing 101 class. I initially enrolled in the class to find money for my non-profit organization. After the first clasds and during the 8 weeks of class instructed by Dr. Anthony, I started to learn more about grant writing, mission and vision statements, letter of intents, and budgets by working hands-on with actual RFP's. I quickly realized there were things I needed to change for my organization. Loving all the knowledge I gained in the 8 weeks, I realized I needed to know more!! I then enrolled in the intermediate grant writing course. Completing these courses has allowed me to become confident in the changes that were made for my organization, as well as become a freelance grant writer!" - Charnita McClain
