Our Grant Management concentration will help the teacher candidate explore varied mechanisms at the local, state and federal level for funding educational initiatives.
Six courses in this concentration will prepare you by teaching the intricacies of proposal writing, grant development and grant management. Depending on the level, you will develop practical skills such as research, data presentation and the mechanics of proposal writing in a collaborative setting of class activities. Some will assess the strengths and weaknesses of their current organizations; develop a program design, problem statement, timeline, budget, flow chart of proposed program and an executive summary. The more advanced courses will focus on finalizing an application in response to a request for proposal (RFP), while learning to build systematic organizational processes to manage the implementation and assessment of the grants in general.
