Accepted Education Program

GPCI is committed to life-long learning and elevation of the grants field. To aid in this effort, GPCI has instituted an Accepted Education Program. This program establishes a mechanism to assist grant professionals in determining their best educational or training opportunities.


Each of the providers on this list have undergone an application process with GPCI® to ensure specific training or education sessions cover competencies that are necessary to achieve and maintain the GPC credential. Formal educational or training programs will be accepted for GPCI education points, provided the course primarily covers grant competences published by GPCI.

If you have training sessions you would like included in the Accepted Education Program, please download and complete the Accepted Education Program Application and send it to


We also have Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) to help with commonly asked questions available here.

GPCI maintains a list of providers which have been reviewed and approved as part of the Accepted Education Program. These organizations will display the Accepted Education Program logo on the specific training sessions which have been approved.

Disclaimer: Please note it is the responsibility of the candidate to confirm with the providers that a particular training session has been awarded the GPCI Accepted Education Program status. Participants must also check directly with the providers above for applicable number of credits available per training. Participants should obtain proof of attendance directly from the provider.
