A grant-writing workshop, sponsored by the University of New Mexico Foundation, will take place Monday-Friday, Jan. 31 - Feb. 4, 2011. Conducted by the The Grantsmanship Center (TGCI), the workshop will be held in the Rotunda at UNM's Science and Technology Park. The program fee is $895 and registration is limited to 30 participants per session. A limited number of seats have been reserved for UNM employees. UNM staff and faculty can use tuition remission.

The Grantsmanship Center's five-day Grantsmanship Training Program has a proven record of benefits both for newcomers to the field and for experienced grant seekers. Participants will practice using The Grantsmanship Center's groundbreaking approach to planning programs and writing grant proposals and will leave with a wealth of useful, up-to-date, practical information—including a training manual, handouts and ideas that can be put to work immediately.

The program will teach the characteristics and practices of different funders—government, foundation and corporate—and how to track down the most appropriate funding sources for specific programs. As part of the workshop, participants will work in teams, select an actual grant and write a real proposal. They will learn to think like a grant-maker, reviewing other proposals to see what works and what doesn't.

Interested UNM staff and faculty can register by contacting Sherry TenClay at sherrytc@unm.edu or 277-6038. All other participants may contact The Grantsmanship Center directly via e-mail, registrar@tgci.com or call, 800-421-9512. Early enrollment is encouraged as TGCI workshops often fill to capacity.
