SOC 470 - Grant Writing

Grant money to assist people in need is available for all communities and all categories of people in need in the U.S. and most of the world. However, the competiiton for this money is normally very high. In this course, students learn how to 1) package their ideas for a grant in the most compelling manners, and 2) prepare each part of a grant proposal to be powerful as possible. Grant writing is a highly desired professional skill, and those who have this skill often experience improved job mobility and job security. Some students who take this course seek this professional edge in their careers, while other students want to use their grant writing skill on a volunteer basis. Volunteer grant writing is often done for one's church, a local school, the local fire department or ambulance service - and to meet a vast array of other grassroots community needs.
