The Struggle and Why YOU Should Take This Course

Early in your grant writing career, it’s easy to waste months trying to learn more skills to land grant funds. Despite all of your efforts, you’ll still be lost because you:

  • You lack a formal background in grant writing
  • Only find courses and boot camps offered in the industry were either too jargon-filled or lacked sufficient depth.
  • Don’t didn’t have insider tips nor the right resources on how to stand out as a candidate in grant writing interviews

To become a better grant writing professional, we went down the rabbit hole to understand what it takes to build a successful grant proposal from the inside out. We interviewed thought leaders within the industry, learned the behaviors and habits of successful grant writers, and documented our own experiences writing grants. Empowered with this knowledge, we helped others land grant writers roles with great organizations.

That’s why we created the Grant Writing Certification Course so that no one else had to go through the painful experience that we went through to become more experienced to effectively land grant funds.

This course was created for aspiring grant writers or people who want to brush up on their grant writing skills. In this course, we teach the fundamentals of grant writing, how to create great grant proposals, and how to stand out in the recruiting process to land grant writing jobs.

What are you going to get from this course?

  • Over 70+ lectures, 10+ downloadable grant writing templates, and exclusive interviews (more added over time) with grant writing professionals in the industry.
  • Instructor feedback on your grant proposal.
  • Access to downloadable templates used by actual grant writers on the job.
  • Learn the process of answering the most popular grant writing interview questions in order to stand out as a grant writing candidate.
  • Earn a certificate of completion upon finishing the course

Bonus Content:

  • I have been 100% committed to adding more BONUS course content and interviews with tech product leaders over time (I love all things Grant Writing and highly enjoy adding content!) and you’ll get FREE LIFETIME ACCESS to all future content!


“This was the perfect course for me to get started in grant writing. The concepts are well-explained and the templates helped me get started right away.” – 5/5 stars

Angel Diaz., Grant Writing student who now works as a Grant Writer


“Even though I didn’t have much experience in grant writing, this course helped guide me to the point of landing funding consistently. Thank you.”

Victoria N, Technical Writer


“The capstone will make a great addition to my writing portfolio. I didn’t realize how much experience companies expect from their technical communication applicants, so having the writing samples and insight from this course helps A TON as someone with only one year of full-time work experience. You guys nailed it.”
