Grant It Yourself Mentoring Program

Grant Writing Course

There are 16 modules to the course, each with their own video. Modules also include worksheets, templates or handy documents to help you find and write quality grant applications.

This course is designed for you to work through at your own pace. You do not have to do it all at once! You can repeat any section/s as often as you like during your membership; re-watch the videos and use the templates and worksheets as often as you need.

As part of your membership you also get access to our private Grant It Yourself Facebook group and our monthly group coaching calls to provide support to you as you write applications.
