Your ethical standards define who you are, and help raise your program to a higher standard. But if you listen to the news, you will hear about dishonesty, fake news, and people cheating systems in every way they can. What ethical standards are you, as a grant professional, guided by? Do you keep abreast of the latest research so that you have the expertise to guide your clients? Do you know the rules for allowable expenditures to advise on budgetary matters according to the laws? If a client wants to hire you with grant funds you won for their organization, can you do it? These are some of the dilemmas faced by grant professionals daily. Knowing how to handle them can promote positive relationships between grant professionals and stakeholders, and also enhance your public image and recognition.
