Texas A&M University-Texarkana Extended Education and Community Development will offer two grant-writing courses this summer to provide individuals and nonprofit organizations with information on best practices in researching and writing grant proposals.
Introduction to Grants, a four-session seminar, is set for July 11, 13, 18 and 20 from 6-8 p.m. in University Center 216 on the A&M-Texarkana campus. Designed for those new to grants and grant writing, the course will focus how to identify and locate grant opportunities, how grants work, and how to apply. Cost is $249.
Grant Writing 101, a four-hour writing seminar, is set for Aug. 1 and 8 in University Center 216 on the A&M-Texarkana campus. It is designed for those who have identified a grant opportunity and want to get started. Individuals who lack prior knowledge of grants are encouraged to take Introduction to Grants prior to this class. Cost is $149.
Instructor for both courses is Dr. Dayna Goldstein, assistant professor of English at A&M-Texarkana. Dr. Goldstein has a Doctor of Philosophy in English from Kent State University, a Master of Arts in English from Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi and a Bachelor of Science in Organizational Communication from the University of Utah. Prior to coming to A&M-Texarkana, she taught writing classes at Georgia Southern University and Kent State University.
“We are thrilled to bring these opportunities to Texarkana and the four-state region,” said Shelley Caraway, executive director of Extended Education and Community Development. “Dr. Goldstein has a tremendous amount of experience in writing and proposal preparation, and we are very fortunate to have her leading these classes.”
