As the economy continues to flounder, money from grants becomes even more important to nonprofit organizations.
And applying for those grants becomes even more competitive.
The N.C. Biotechnology Center in Research Triangle Park has launched a program to help Tar Heel applicants write stronger grant proposals.
“Grant writing is a specialized skill,” said Deborah De, Statewide Programs manager at the Biotechnology Center.
Many scientists the N.C. Research Campus, a biotech complex in Kannapolis, will rely on grant money to fund their projects.
The Biotechnology Center encourages organizations across North Carolina to get the training that can help them write successful grants.
Any academic institution or nonprofit organization involved in the life sciences or related economic development activities can apply.
The new program will provide up to $5,000 to help faculty and staff compete for money to fund their various projects.
The Biotechnology Center has a variety of loans and grants designed to leverage additional funding for North Carolina’s life sciences community.
Interested applicants should apply early because money is limited. The program is expected to end when this round of funds is disbursed.
Information is available at www.ncbiotech.org/gtg.
To learn more, contact De at (919) 549-8845 or deborah_de@ncbiotech.org.
The Biotechnology Center is a private, non-profit corporation supported by the N.C. General Assembly.
