If your institution has ever been curious about applying for a federal grant, this is a wonderful opportunity to learn how to position your institution competitively. At the federal level, there are more opportunities than ever before available to higher education. And there has never been a more important time for your institution to develop diverse revenue streams. We are pleased to offer you this webinar on best practices for grant seeking, including developing a strategic focus and targeting the right grants for your college or university.
Join with consultants Jessica Gerrity, Ph. D., and Emily Cunningham, from McAllister & Quinn, a higher education consulting firm in Washington, D.C., that provides a comprehensive range of services to a diverse group of colleges and universities. Gonser Gerber has a decade-long partnership with McAllister & Quinn, and we are sure this program will help our audience better understand what a federal grant is and why it’s so important to the health of your institution.
Topics we will cover include:
- The current budgetary landscape for federal funding;
- How to diversify your revenue stream through federal grants;
- Why now is a good time to develop a grant-seeking strategy; and
- Experienced advice on what works.
The fee is $295 per institution, which allows your entire team the opportunity to participate in this professional development at the same time. If you are a current client of Gonser Gerber Advancement Consulting, that fee is just $145. You will also receive a copy of the presentation and a recording of the webinar with your registration.
