About the Program
The Gamecock Research Administrators Network Training (GRANT) Staff 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 in research administration then pass a final comprehensive exam. A complete program of courses is offered during each fall semester. Each course includes a lecture, practical activities and participant-driven discussions. A graduation ceremony is held to recognize participants and present certificates.
