    What People Are Saying About Our Grants Team

    “If you are looking for a grant writer, who is a TRIO alum, is knowledgeable about the grant writing process, and possesses excellent proven grant funding track record then look no further – that person is none other than Heath Alexander. Over the years he has provided me with sound technical advice on grant writing for TRIO programs.”

     

    Ngondi A. Kamaṱuka
    Director, University of Kansas Center for Educational Opportunity Programs (TRIO/GEAR UP/EOP)

     

    “Our institution lost both of our SSS and Talent Search grants in consecutive competitions, so I decided to seek the assistance of Heath Alexander to ensure our Upward Bound program didn’t see the same fate. As a result we received our first ever perfect score.  Heath not only critiqued our grant but spent time with me and my staff to train us how to write the grant.  He went above and beyond our expectations.”

     

    William Tandy
    Program Director, Wayne State University Upward Bound

     

    “Heath Alexander brings with him all the knowledge and experience expected of someone representing the interests of TRIO program grants at the national level.  Perhaps more important, is his practitioner’s point of view when assessing the intricate and essential components of a strong application.  Heath helped our staff understand that the Need, Objectives and Plan of Operation sections, are foundational pieces which set the tone for a strong document throughout.  He is a TRIO alumnus and former TRIO program administrator who knows what the readers are looking for in a strong application.”

     

    Sergio Galvez
    Senior Director, California Lutheran University TRIO Upward Bound Programs

     

    “Finding a trusted advisor to secure the future of your program and services for your students is an important part of the grant writing process.  It’s nice to have the support of a professional who understands the application and requirements for funding”
