Have you ever wondered how much a grant professional gets paid and/or what benefits are offered? GPA answers these questions and many more in the GPA Survey of Salaries and Benefits. The survey results rely on your input to provide accurate and reliable data that can be used by individuals and managers to review salary and benefit information for themselves and their staff. This information is a benefit not only to you as a GPA member, but to our association and the grants profession. Take the survey by Friday, April 15 and provide us with your email address to be entered into a chance to win a free year membership to GPA.
