Course Detail: BUS480 - Grant Writing
Learn the art of writing a compelling grant proposal.

Developing effective grant writing skills are essential to acquire competitive funding from government agencies and private foundations. Professional grant writers use clear, specific language to focus the reader's attention, and to persuade the reader to fund their proposal. Writing a successful grant proposal requires basic know-how, content knowledge, writing proficiency, strong research skills, creativity, organizational ability, and patience.

This course will provide you with the background necessary to develop a basic funding proposal. It will also provide an introduction to the basic skills, principles and techniques of successful grant writing.

Students will be expected to prepare a complete grant proposal to an agency of their choice and have that proposal reviewed by professionals in their field.
