Continue Your Education with a Continuing Education Grantfrom:
Many individuals find themselves having to interrupt their studies for some reason, be it due to a death in the family, or to start a new family. After a while, though, these individuals wish to return to school. In other cases, both individuals and organizations realize the benefit of continuing an education to improve technical or theoretical knowledge and increase work efficiency. This is where a special education grant comes in.
These grants can be given to individuals who wish to return to school either after they have suspended their studies for personal reasons, or to individuals who wish to increase their professional knowledge at a job they are currently performing. These grants are also given to organizations that wish to create continuing education classes for adults who wish to go back to school after interrupting their studies or for professional development, such as librarians, or EMTs, or even musicians.
A continuing education grant for individuals often comes with restrictions, such as requiring that an applicant be either part-time or full-time, not have a post-secondary degree yet, enroll in a specific program, reside in a specific place, and meet certain financial and academic restrictions. Depending on the specific continuing education grant, an individual may be required to write a statement as to explain why he or she wishes to participate in a continuing education program.
The institution seeking continuing education grant money must demonstrate with a proposal why the money is needed and why the money will be put to good use in the area of continuing education. Proposals must give some background information, the purpose of the grant, the need for the grant, where the grant will be used and for whom (the target population), the strategies to implement the grant, the personnel employed, methods for evaluating the success of the project, and a budget. Depending on the specific project, then, there may be other, more particular, requirements.
A continuing education grant can be donated by the federal or state government, non-profit organizations, academic institutions, research institutions, funding institutions, corporations, or private individuals. Grants.gov is an excellent place to start the search, which is a site listing all Federal grants available (4400 billion are available) as is Ed.gov, the home page of the US Department of Education. Internet searches are helpful, and sites such as finaid.org, collegeanswer.com, and the Michigan State Library website are excellent sources for continuing education grant information.
One of the best ways to research grant opportunities is to visit your regional foundation library, located at most major universities. Your local library will also have books listing grant opportunities, and you can consult with the librarian if you have any questions. These kinds of books will also be available either at your high school counselor’s office or your university’s financial aid office. You can purchase these books at book stores.
