USGG grant writers specialize in the arena of education grants. Its founder and lead instructor, Beverly Santicola, has a track record of success in writing education grants for elementary-secondary education, technology, healthcare, science, literacy programs, economic development and labor-management cooperation. With an average of one million dollars in grant awards each year, Santicola has authored education grants that have increased learning outcomes in reading, writing and mathematics; increased interest and learning outcomes in science and citizenship; established community technology centers in rural elementary schools and created innovative after school programs.
In addition to receiving numerous national awards for educational grant programs, Santicola recently collaborated with Jan Mitchell Johnson (a $150M+ education grants expert) to create a program called Growing SMART: How to Teach Teens Science, Math and Art Through Grant Writing. Teens that have participated in the course have generated more than $200,000 in grants for their communities and schools. Shivela Middle School in Murrieta, California participated in the program in 2013 and 2014.
