Areas of Study

Course Overview

Working in a highly interactive online environment, participants gain hands on experience in how nonprofits, state and federal agencies, and schools can develop successful non-construction grant applications for funding. This course will provide a grant writing experience over 8 weeks for individuals with experience in working within the United States nonprofit or educational sectors (i.e. program staff, university faculty, executive directors, school administrators and program directors). All assignments, discussions, group activities and other forms of participation will be conducted online. Participants are expected to critically respond to questions and engage in inquiry both individually and with others to reflect upon the grant writing process. At the end of the course, participants will have a completed grant proposal for submission.
