Who is GPA?

GPA is THE place for grant professionals.


The Grant Professionals Association (GPA) is the only international membership association for all grant professionals seeking to continually improve their professional knowledge and skills in grant research, proposal development, and post-award grant management. GPA sets the standard with our commitment to ethical practices, our high-quality educational offerings, excellence in resources, and our community of professionals committed to serving the public good. GPA promises to serve as a standard bearer for ethical practices in grantsmanship while we provide continuing professional development and the resources grant professionals need to succeed in their career.

GPA and its affiliates work to advance the profession, certify professionals, and fund professionalism. The Grant Professionals Certification Institute oversees the GPC credential based on a body of knowledge for the profession. The Grant Professionals Foundation provides scholarships to individuals to advance their career.
