Many prospective students ask "Will I be able to write a grant proposal after taking this class?" The answer is YES if you attend every class, engage in the lectures (ask questions, be proactive in your work), and complete the VMG challenge assignments each week (these are writing assignments related to the lecture material). The program is designed to take you step-by-step through all of the components of putting together a grant proposal. 

Attend lectures + complete VMG Challenge Assignments = Your Grant Writing Success

If you have to miss a class, you will be given access to a recording of the class to keep you on track.
