Ohio University-Zanesville hosts grant writing workshop

ATHENS, Ohio (April 3, 2006) -- Ohio University-Zanesville will hold a comprehensive workshop that provides tools for writing a successful grant proposal. During this five-week session, participants will study grant components, develop a plan and write a grant proposal ready for submission. This course is designed to assist educators and other professionals in all areas of grant preparation. Sessions will be held on five Wednesday evenings, from 4:30 to 8 p.m. beginning on April 12.

This workshop is tailored to the individual needs of each student and will be hands-on considering all aspects of grant writing. The course will include lecture, small group activities, group discussions, review of proposals, guided Internet research and writing activities.

Sessions will be taught by Howard Troutner, a grant writing trainer. Mr. Troutner has a long and successful career as a grant writer. During the past eight years he has acquired over $10 million in funded grants for the school system where he worked. He has received over 140 hours of grant writing training from the Grantsmanship Center in California and from Research Associates in South Carolina.
