Congratulations to the graduates of the 2015 NOSORH Grant Writing Institute (GWI). This year’s class included over 50 people representing SORHs, hospitals, health departments, and universities.  This course covers everything from finding funding opportunities, developing evaluations and connecting with community partners. Each participant can earn a rural health grant writer certificate by completing 4 assignments.  The participants work to complete the assignments provides them with the pieces for a shell grant application, which they can use to begin applying for funds.  It requires dedication to the process but participants tell us it works.

One participant shared, “The grant writing course is excellent and having assignments makes it a true learning experience.  I appreciate your positive feedback and great mentorship during the process.”  Sharla Allen participated in the course this year along with several state and community partners in her state.  Sharla says, “I’ve heard such great feedback from our WY participants. We’ll use the NOSORH grant writing class for future offerings to grow rural grant writers in Wyoming.”
