Administering Federal grants is uniquely challenging at institutions of higher education. Despite the Federal Government’s recent efforts to impose uniformity in grant regulations and guidance for all Non-Federal Entities, campus cultures and operational dynamics can vary greatly at different colleges and universities. Institutions come in many different sizes and organizational structures, leading to the investment of resources in grant staffing and support systems varying widely.
With the advent of the Uniform Grant Guidance, everything from the way you apply for grants to how you manage your funding has changed. It’s imperative that your entire team is not only up-to-date on the latest grants rules and regulations, but you understand the best way to accomplish that in the specialized college and university setting.
Join us at the Federal Grants Forum for Institutions of Higher Education in Boston, MA, on April 3rd through 4th to learn from powerhouse sessions delivered by a knowledgeable compliance expert who has specialized pre-award and post-award experience as a grant practitioner in the college and university environment. You will also have an opportunity to network with other higher ed grants and finance professionals facing similar challenges.
With your registration, you will receive:
• Two days of expert-led grants training
• Networking opportunities during provided breakfasts, lunches, and optional dutch-treat dinner
• BONUS! A print copy of the Uniform Guidance – a $49 value!
• BONUS! Thompson’s Grants Quick Start Toolkit to help you through the entire grants lifecycle – a $249 value!
• BONUS! Four months of digital access to Thompson’s Grants Compliance Expert Suite – a $596 value! (New subscribers only.)
You may be able to charge the cost of your Thompson Training to your federal grant(s). For state agencies and other nonfederal entities, under the cost principles of the uniform guidance, there are allowable items of cost for subscriptions (§200.454.(b)) and professional development (§200.472). Please check with your program director, finance officer or granting agency to ensure there is no restriction in the approved grant budget or the award documents.
