Grant Ethics Bootcamp

So often ethics about grants are focused on the mismanagement of grant funding which gets flashy headlines in the news. But ethics are important throughout the full grant lifecycle from research to reporting. Each of the four sessions in this course will present information tied to grant and development codes of conduct, standard grant best practices, and case studies and will facilitate a question-and-answer session for each core topic.


  • When: Six sessions held weekly at 12:00-2:00 PM CT, on 9/17, 9/ 24, 10/1, 10/8, 10/15, and 1/22.
  • Cost: $500 for the entire six-session course (valued at $750)
