Grant Writing Fundamentals

This course will teach students how to write a standard foundation grant proposal and introduce them to government grants, primarily federal government grants. The fundamentals of grant writing can be applied to any professional field – education, health care, social services, environment, faith-based, and government businesses and industries.  In addition to learning how to write a foundation grant proposal, students will be given resources to identify public and private grant makers to fund their projects and provided with sample proposals to read and review. Students will write a three-to-five page grant proposal during the course on a project of their choice.

The course will be taught on line with Blackboard, therefore, it will be Asynchronous without a designated time. Modules will be posted with a due date. Two sessions of this course are scheduled for this summer:

May 16, 2011 – June 24, 2011

July 5, 2011 – August 12, 2011
