NOSORH Rural Health Grant Writing Institute

The NOSORH Rural Health Grant Writing Institute was developed to meet the unique needs of rural grant writers — like you! Each session walks participants through one of the basic building blocks or strategies for successful program funding.

Participants in the course will benefit from:

    • A certificate of completion after completing 6 out of 9 learning sessions and all quizzes and evaluations.
    • Tools, templates, and tips to help apply what they learn to their everyday work and build a personal grant writing portfolio.
    • Opportunity for one-on-one support, peer review, and discussion with other new and experienced grant writers.

Teryl Eisinger, NOSORH’s contractor, has more than 25 years’ experience writing grant applications to federal, state and foundation funders on projects for training programs, small business development and outreach programs. Her practical approach will include reality-based tips and templates for you to use in your own pursuit of funding.

Weekly virtual learning sessions will take place on Mondays from 3:00-4:30 pm ET. The Institute runs from February 27-May 8, 2023. View the flyer for the full curriculum.
