GRANT Certificate Program

The GRANT Certificate Program offers foundational education, training and resources for research administrators. The program provides an overview of the grant life cycle taught by subject matter experts from across campus.

About the Program

The Gamecock Research Administrators Network Training (GRANT) Certificate Program prepares research administrators to work with faculty in their departments to manage the administrative functions related to grants and sponsored awards. This certificate program complements the national standards established by the National Council of University Research Administrators (NCURA).

To earn a GRANT certificate, participants must complete a series of classes, electives and pass a comprehensive final exam. GRANT program is offered every fall semester. Each course includes a lecture, practical activities and participant-driven discussions. A graduation ceremony is held to recognize participants and the Vice President for Research presents the certificates.
