EDU 527 - Grant Writing Strategies for Educators

3 Cr. Hrs.
This course is designed to provide students with the practical skills of preparing competitive grant proposals for submission to private foundations, corporations, professional associations, and other funding sources. Students will be introduced to various sources of funding, common components of grant proposals, as well as strategies to develop each component of a grant proposal. Students will work individually and collaboratively with other professionals to design standards/research based, data driven, grant proposals that will increase educator effectiveness and results for all students. They will apply skills learned by working directly with other class members, district staff, and school staff to develop a standards based, data supported grant proposal for submission to an appropriate funding source for their project. The goal is to assist educators to develop the competencies that are necessary to develop a grant proposal that supports instruction, academic achievement, and well-being for their students as well as their own professional development. Course discussions will include review and analysis of funded projects, development of the Needs Statement, Project Summary, Goals and Objectives, Project Strategies, Evaluation and Budget. Some procedures in grant implementation will also be covered.
