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 the revised 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 Virtual Federal Grants Forum for Institutions of Higher Education from July 21 through July 22nd to learn about coronavirus-related grants considerations, the 2020 compliance supplement, and how new grants are affected by the uniform guidance changes that went into effect on November 12, 2020. This is the compliance information you need to confidently manage your grants and protect your funding.
Our two-day agenda includes 8 powerhouse sessions that cover everything you need to know – start to finish – about how to tackle the toughest grants management challenges, specifically for institutions of higher education, while addressing how COVID-19 has changed the game. You’ll be able to ask your specific questions directly to our trainer in our virtual learning environment as you watch the presentations.
With your registration, you will receive:
✓ Two days of expert-led grants training.
✓ Up to 9.6 NASBA CPEs & 9.6 GPCI CEUs (Interactive virtual viewers only)
