Winning Grants and Sustaining Communities

The Winning Grants and Sustaining Communities Program trains community-University teams in the skills of grant writing and fundraising through workshops highlighting federal grants, foundation and corporate grants and professional fundraising. Through additional funding, teams are able to pursue initiatives that improve the quality of life within their local communities.

Interested in participating in Winning Grants?

Both teams and individuals may apply. Teams can include up to five people, but must include at least one community member and one University-affiliated member.
The program begins in August each year and runs through the following June.

The workshops are taught by nationally acclaimed grant trainer, David G. Bauer, one of the most highly sought-after speakers on grant seeking.

Bauer’s grants strategies have resulted in successful grants by more than 45,000 individuals over the past half century. His 11 books on writing and submitting grants are in several editions. He served on the faculty of both UAB and the University of Rochester’s School of Medicine and Dentistry. Bauer has conducted research fellows programs at The University of Alabama, Wake Forest University, UNC-Greensboro and Marquette University.
