I am teaching the following course in Spring 2019:
PA 795: Grant Writing and Management (MPA elective course)
This course will provide you with the skills and knowledge to:
- seek, solicit, and receive grants from foundation and government sources to support public and nonprofit projects;
- manage grants effectively; and
- assess grant applications and oversee funded projects.
Your learning will be hands-on, and as such, you will be evaluated for the practical knowledge you demonstrate in completing the assignments. You will benefit from focusing on a particular policy area throughout the course.
The course assignments are:
A1) Funding search
A2) Background narrative (why a program would be beneficial)
A3) Budget document and budget narrative
A4) Grant proposal narrative
A5) Grant management report
A6) Funder’s perspective: grant application assessment
A7) Full grant proposal
The required book is:
Hall, Jeremy L. 2010. Grant Management: Funding for Public and Nonprofit Programs. Jones and Bartlett. ISBN: 9780763755270.
All other materials will be provided to students.
