Binghamton University to host grant writing workshop


The Professional Development and Research arm of Binghamton University’s School of Education and Human Development will host a two-day advanced grant-writing workshop Wednesday, January 7, and Wednesday, January 14.

The workshop is scheduled to run from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. each day. Sessions will examine proposal ideas, funding sources and research methods. Participants will also review the process of writing grants as well as budgeting and follow-up.

When appropriate, actual grant proposals will be used, examined and critiqued. Participants are expected to have some relevant skill in the grant writing process acquired though course work or direct experience.

The workshop will be taught by Dan McCormack, project director for Binghamton University’s Student Support Service Project. McCormack has over 30 years of experience in the field of grant writing and currently teaches graduate courses at the University. McCormack received his bachelor’s degree from Michigan State University and his master’s and PhD degrees from Rutgers University.

The advanced grant writing workshop costs $250 and will be held on the Binghamton University campus. For more information, or to register, contact the Division of Professional Development and Research at 607-777-4447, or via e-mail at
