The Winning Grant Proposal Competition for 2021 - The Winners

Trophy

THE WINNING GRANT PROPOSAL COMPETITION

2021 WINNERS

Brought to you by:

GrantStation and The Grant Professionals Association

Our thanks and appreciation go to the
entrants, judges, and volunteer screeners!

There are so many well written grant proposals that it feels only right to turn the spotlight on these winning efforts now and then. After 40 years of grantwriting I know the time, planning and strategizing that goes into writing a winning proposal and this contest is meant to highlight those herculean efforts. This year, we had the honor of hosting eight judges that have helped us determine who would 'win' this contest. It wasn't easy! With over 200 applications it took time and diligence on the part of GrantStation staff, volunteers and our excellent panel of judges to determine the winner: Chris Canfield, Executive Director, Conservation Trust of North Carolina. Congratulations Chris!

-Cynthia M. Adams, GrantStation CEO
