At least two Rotarians from Clubs with a membership of 20 or more, based upon Rotary International records as of July 1, 2016, must complete a Grant Management Seminar by October 15, 2017 or the date of club's grant application, whichever is earlier. If your Club has fewer than 20 members, at least one of your members must complete a Grant Management Seminar according to same timeline.

NEW THIS YEAR: The Chair of your grant project must complete the current Grant Management Seminar and anyone (except for your Club President) signing your grant application must also have completed the current Grant Management Seminar. (These can be the same people and are counted in the 1 or 2 members normally required to take the course.) Names of those that completed Grant Management Seminar should be clearly noted on the Grant Application so records can easily be cross-checked.

The 2016-2017 Grant Management Seminar is being offered in TWO versions:

  1. An ON-LINE version – NEW this year - an on-demand service so you can take it whenever you want. It comes in three, 30-45 minute modules. You can take part of it, save your work, and return later to do some more. Each module requires you download and review some materials, watch a video presentation and complete a short quiz. All three modules must be completed no later than October 15, 2017 or the date club submits application, whichever is earlier.
