In today’s world of shrinking budgets and increasing need, a well-trained grant writer can help position an organization for success. Syringa Hospital’s grant writer, Darla Anglen-Whitley, proves to be doing just that. Whitley, who recently received her Grants Training and Certification from Fort Hays State University (FHSU), noted that the program was an intensive 8-week course via the internet and included a certification exam.
“I heard about the grant proposal writing course from our State Office of Rural Health in Boise. They are extremely supportive of FHSU’s program and offered grant funding to cover the cost of the course, contingent on my passing the final exam” stated Anglen-Whitley.
The course is taught by Dr. Keith Campbell, who has been teaching at FHSA for over 32 years and teaching grant proposal writing for more than 20 years. Students from across the United States who have completed this course have gone on to write successful grant proposals for their organizations.
Recently, Syringa Hospital received an Idaho Dedicated Grant in the amount of $99,000 for a new ambulance, a P-25 complaint radio, and a gurney through a grant proposal written by Anglen-Whitley.
“Even though I have been involved in the research, writing and submittal of grants in the past, this course offered some specific and practical ideas to help make the proposals I write for Syringa more competitive,” said Anglen-Whitley.
