    • MBA in Education Leadership
    • UNM is partnering with the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation on a unique and innovative master's degree: an MBA in Education Leadership. This interdisciplinary program between the School of Business and the School of Education combines the best practices in business and education leadership within an educational context.
    • About the Partnership
    • The Woodrow Wilson MBA Fellowship in Education Leadership recruits and prepares outstanding leaders for schools and districts in participating states. The goal: to address the United States' twin educational achievement gaps—the one between the nation's lowest performing and its best schools, as well as the one between the nation's best schools and their top international competitors. The Fellowship seeks both to prepare leaders who can bring all American schools up to world-class levels of performance and to develop a new gold standard for preparing education leaders.

It takes more than "grant writing" to win grants!  The Grant Skills Workshop is an interactive workshop that gives you an overview of the entire grant process, with in-depth emphasis on key areas where even experienced grant professionals often misstep.  Participants will learn how to navigate the world of grant procurement and polish key sections of successful proposals to bring projects to the top of the submission pile.

The sessions will help you establish a strategic plan for your grant writing process, including:

  • Needs statement
  • Mission, goals, and objectives
  • Activities
  • Evaluation
  • Key personnel
  • Budgets

All sessions engage the attendees in interactive exercises, writing, lectures and discussions so that all participants will leave the class understanding how to research, write and develop their specific project.  This hands-on workshop includes practical exercises that will take you step-by-step through the stages of planning programs, locating funding sources and grant writing proposals.
