grants process during the fall semester:

how they all relate to one another within a grant proposal. In
addition, you will learn specifics pertaining to allowable costs
vs. unallowable costs, as well as how a budget should properly
reflect your narrative.

review process required prior to submitting a proposal to an
external agency through St. John’s University, as well as provide a

Grants.Gov and FastLane.
