What Our Students Are Saying

“I am already working in the grants field. I was lucky enough to get the Director of Grant Funding position at the OPRF Infant Welfare Society about 5 months ago. I truly credit the GME program for getting me started in my new career. It almost feels like I have had an internship along the way. It is great to be nearing the end of the program! I am so excited to finally have reached the Capstone course.”

“Even while taking classes in CUC’s Grant Writing, Management and Evaluation master’s program, I’ve been putting my new skills to work by writing these grants: Arata Brothers Trust ($9,000), Dennis Mangers Foundation ($3,500), North Bay Rotary Grant ($7,500), Arata Brothers Trust ($16,000), Sacramento Metro Arts Commission ($62,985), Smart and Final ($150), City of Elk Grove ($2,000), United States Marines Corps ($7,500), and Kaiser Heath Sponsorship ($1,000). The amazing thing is every grant I applied for in this past year got funded!”

“The insight I gained throughout Concordia-Chicago’s Master of Grant Writing program solidified my confidence as a professional within the field and has proven to set me apart from other qualified candidates vying for the same opportunities. The wealth of knowledge I gained through my instructors and through the engaging discussions with my peers helped me to develop into a substantially greater asset to the not-for-profit missions I have served since graduation and has opened the door to advancement within staff settings and freelance assignments alike.”
