Many leaders use grant funding to launch their ventures, test out new ideas, and expand their businesses. Managing a grant to make the most of this opportunity, however, is both a science and an art.
That’s why we are excited to announce that a new Grants Management course – exclusively for Fellowship Alumni! Through this course, produced in partnership with the U.S. African Development Foundation (USADF), Alumni will learn best practices and access templates to help them both meet and exceed expectations — of accountability, relationship building, and showcasing their work to funders and their stakeholders.
In their role as a funder, USADF will share their extensive grants management knowledge, and Fellowship Alumni will share their perspectives on successfully managing and leveraging grants to grow their not-for-profit organizations, social ventures, and private businesses with their peers. The Fellowship recommends that Alumni take Intermediate to Advanced Grant Writing, Managing, and Reporting in the Leading in a Crisis course before they begin this new course.
For the first three weeks of the course, February 17 to March 10, 2021, Alumni also have exclusive access to course instructors and peer collaboration opportunities.
