Students will work independently on this assignment. The task is to choose an area of interest related to the human service field and develop a grant proposal.
This assignment has two components: a final grant proposal and a PowerPoint presentation of the grant proposal. Each student working independently, must: (1) Identify a ‘fundable’ program, service or focus (2) Identify a potential funding source (3) Develop a grant proposal.
Requests for Proposals (RFP) may include unique requirements that you must read carefully and follow, many grant proposals are often organized in distinct sections.
