Grants Management Courses from Dept of Ed

Recently grants.gov highlighted one of the more comprehensive sets of training modules on offer from the U.S. Department of Education. In fact, there are currently ten self-paced e-learning courses available on ED.gov’s Grants Training and Management Resources page.


The on-line training is presented in 45-min to one-hour modules at a level at which both novice and more experienced grant writers will benefit from completing the courses, either by acquiring new information, or reinforcing key concepts. The module on Discretionary Grants Administration, for example, covers “basic concepts in grants management, such as performance periods, performance measures, evaluation, reporting requirements, project budget and objectives and allowable activities, and oversight of the grant recipients’ contracts and sub-awards,” among other topics.


The training applies to grants in any field and from any federal agency.
