Congratulations to the graduates of the 2013 NOSORH Grant Writing Institute (GWI). This year’s class was comprised of 67 people representing SORHs, hospitals, state and community health departments, and universities. In order to achieve graduation, GWI participants had to complete at least five of the seven homework assignments and attend at least six webinars. Fifty-three participants earned a certificate of completion. Click here for a list of GWI graduates.
Recent GWI graduates have already found their training valuable. After participating in the 2012 GWI, C.J. King, the grants coordinator at Grace Cottage Hospital in Townshend, VT, applied for and won a HRSA Small Hospital Improvement grant of $300,000 for diabetes education grant—her “first-ever federal grant application,” King said. “The GWI’s guidance about where to find background info and do research was very useful. And the general review of the various parts of the application and budget, etc., was all a big help!”
