There are conflicting schools of thought when it comes to compensating a grant writer. Some grant writers charge a flat fee, some charge a percentage of the grant award, and others a combination of the two. In this course you’ll look at the perceived and ethical issues associated with the grant writing profession.

Student praise for this course: "Mr. Terrence Carter is extraordinary at tailoring the course content to the specific needs of participants and converting academic details to 'real world' applications. His depth of expertise is invaluable. This is the third course I've completed with his instruction. He consistently exceeds my expectations for 'take away' knowledge. I consider the cost of courses very wisely invested!"
