This course will focus on gaining competency in the three phases of the grants process: planning, research, and writing. Students will research and explore public and private funding sources appropriate to the human services and environmental fields. The criteria for selecting potential funding sources, the basic elements of a proposal, and developing successful collaborative efforts will be emphasized. Students will interactively engage in each phase of the process and will demonstrate their learning through the development of a funding proposal that is relevant to their area of concentration or research. Effective project management tools and skills (such as tracking personnel, budget spread sheets, use of Gantt charts, etc.) will be discussed and explored through case studies and classroom applications. *Additional contact hours will be met through on-line readings, discussions and assignments.
