We're Here to Support Your Grant Writing Efforts

Submitted by Nancy K Daniels

Grants Folder

In May 2021, a need was highlighted in the Kansas Sampler’s “Power Up and Go” report for grant writing support state-wide.

In response to the need, K-State Research and Extension Specialists offer the following support:

1. Online Grant Writing classes through K-State’s Global Campus. All classes, as they are added, are posted on the Events page. Cost: $60. 
We’ve served 1,962 people in at least 95 counties and two other states with 70 workshops. Of those who responded to a 9-month follow-up survey, $27.9 million of successful grants have been reported by 36% of the attendees to the classes.
2. A Professional Level Grant Development and Management Course, offered by Dr. Elaine Johannes, January 8- March 11, 2022, 8 weeks of instruction, to complete a fundable proposal by Mid-March. Additional Classes to be added each semester.
3. A list of Contract Grant Writers, willing to write grants on contract. (email nkdaniels@ksu.edu if you want to be on that list or to get a referral.)
4. Support for Kansas PRIDE communities to bring in more grant resources to their communities. Contact KSRECV@ksu.edu if you want more information about Kansas PRIDE.
5. New Grant Management and Grant-Finding Classes in 2022. Watch for future announcements. 

Because we are a small staff, the next two are pilot efforts until May 31 or until we are overwhelmed: 
6. Finding Grants for your project. Email ksrecv@ksu.edu 
7. Reading your grant proposals and giving feedback before you submit them. Email nkdaniels@ksu.edu.

Please help us get the word out to your constituents: K-State Research and Extension wants to support Kansas communities to bring in grant resources to improve lives, livelihoods, and communities. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if we can help.
