The Winning Grant Proposal Competition for 2017

GrantStation and the Grant Professionals Association sponsor a biennial review of grant proposals. Awards are then given by a panel of judges to those chosen as the most effective.

GrantStation then provides Members the ability to learn from these successful proposals by reviewing them in their entirety on our page "Samples of Award-Winning Grant Proposals".
