The Grant Writer's Network - September 2019

In partnership with Grant Professionals Association (GPA), OneOC is proud to host The Grant Writers Network, offering a place for grant writers to come and learn from their peers and subject matter experts in the field. You pick the topic and we provide the speaker. Bring your lunch, and your questions, and network with fellow grant writers.

This Month's Topic:
Building Partnerships for Grant Proposals

Collaboration for successful research grants

For a collaborative research grant proposal to be successful, multiple agencies need to come together around a unified goal. Each agency requires knowledgeable researchers who understand how to design and conduct a research study and practitioners who can understand the implications of the results for each individual agency. They also need to know how to share these results with the grant makers funding their proposals! In this session, participants will:
• Discover what your organization, stakeholders, and community gain from partnerships
• Review common federal and state grants that focus on education
• Gain a better understanding of how to partner with UCI faculty members
• Learn about current UCI research studies, particularly in the Center for Creating Opportunities through Education

Grant Professional Certification (GPC) Competencies covered in this session:

Competency #3: Knowledge of strategies for effective program and project design and development (3.02) Identify methods of building partnerships and facilitating collaborations among applicants.
