January 30, 2012 A crash course on grant writing for beginners is being offered at Virtual University. The course is designed for novice
grant writers and e-learners wishing to develop a job skill highly valued in the government and nonprofit sectors. The curriculum developer and
instructor is Dr. Linda Sapp-Cox, a veteran grant writer and nonprofit consultant with more than 50 years of experience in the field.
The Grant Writing 101 e-course includes seven fact-filled curriculum units focusing on: The ABCs of Grant Writing, Nonprofit Terminology, Researching and Writing the
Needs Assessment, Budgets and Grant Writing, 10-Point Plan for Grant Funding Proposals, and Nonprofit Business Development.
In addition to the core curriculum, Dr. Sapp-Cox brings five decades of experience in grant writing and nonprofit consultancy to her virtual
classroom. She enjoys the role of mentoring, helping students learn how to research and write a winning grant proposal, move an idea forward and
successfully obtain funding.
“A savvy grant writer should become the eyes, ears and conscience of the nonprofit organization,” advises Dr. Sapp-Cox. “Research and passion are key
ingredients of any application.”
Registration for the Grant Writing 101 class is $30.00 and no textbook purchase is required.
