Grants Management Professional Competency Model
PEAK Grantmaking’s Grants Management Professional Competency Model defines the professional knowledge, skills, and abilities expected of grants management professionals, regardless of their area of specialization, the size of their organization, or their role within the field.
Job responsibilities, titles, and structures for grants management professionals vary widely between organizations. Therefore, this competency model includes all the competencies that distinguish high-performing grants management professionals and empowers the user to decide which are relevant to them.
The competency model can be used to define your role and create your professional development plan, and serve as a framework for talent recruitment and hiring practices.
The Grants Management Professional Competency Model is a living and evolving resource, and will be updated as needed to reflect changes in the field.
