Learn Grant Writing through SDSU Program

Learn Grant Writing through SDSU Program

San Diego is home to thousands of nonprofit organizations ranging from large educational institutions and hospitals to small startup agencies. They all compete for funding in an increasingly challenging environment, so writing a flawless and compelling grant proposal is crucial to securing funding.

To meet the demand for people in search of these new funding opportunities, SDSU’s College of Extended Studies offers a Professional Certificate in Grant Writing program exclusively online. The Grant Proposal Development course is being offered June 23-July 26 with instructor Jay Katz, who has been writing grant proposals since 1990 and started his own business as full-time grant writer in 1995.

“People who will benefit the most are those who are in the nonprofit field and looking to build on their skills. There are those who may be pursuing a career with a nonprofit organization, and they want to gain skills and make themselves more attractive to potential employers,” Katz said.

Students endorse Katz as their instructor and the online experience. Comments include:

"The instructor had a vast knowledge of grant writing as well as other forms of raising money for projects."
                                                                                                   ~Kimberly M. Paris

"He explains everything very thoroughly and makes it all so easy to understand."
                                                                                                   ~Jessica Van Der Woude

"This online experience was my first ... and it was a very enjoyable way to learn."
                                                                                                   ~Tim Konzen

To complete the certificate program, students must finish two courses: Introduction to Grants and Funding Research along with Grant Proposal Development. Both courses will be offered again during the fall semester.
