Thinking about sitting for the Grant Professional Certified™ (GPC) Exam? Now’s a great time to do so with assistance from the GPC Scholarship Program.

Thanks to donations from individuals, the Grant Professionals Certification Institute (GPCI), and the Grant Professionals Foundation, scholarship funding is available for individuals interested in taking the electronic exam. Any individual interested in the scholarship is welcome to apply today. The deadline to apply is June 20, 2017, 5:00 pm, EST. Scholarship recipients will be announced in August 2017 and officially recognized at the Grant Professionals Association National Conference in San Diego, California, November 8-11, 2017.

All individuals awarded a 2017 GPC Scholarship must submit their eligibility packet to GPCI by March 1, 2018, and if approved to sit for the exam, take it by September 30, 2018.

The cost for sitting for the GPC Exam is $539 for Grant Professional Association members and $739 for non-members. If awarded a scholarship, it will be in the form of a credit directly to GPCI for all or a portion of the GPC exam cost. Each individual is responsible for covering any additional expenses, including transportation costs to the exam site.

Scholarship applicants are responsible for registering for the exam in addition to filling out the scholarship application. To learn more about this process, visit the Grant Professionals Certification Institute website at
