Applicants who do not meet the minimum requirements of five grant awards in the last seven years and at least three years of employment in the last five years will not be approved to sit for the GPC Exam. As noted throughout the GPCI website, the exam itself was designed for a grant professional meeting at least these standards.

It is also possible an applicant may present a packet which does not meet the minimum number of eligibility points required, as detailed on the Eligibility Criteria and the Eligibility Scoring Rubric.

It is the applicant’s responsibility to ensure all required documents are submitted at once and the content presented meets the eligibility requirements. Applicants whose Eligibility Packets are not approved will be informed of specific reasons and will receive a refund of the Exam Fee, but not the Registration Fee.
