Students will work during this course to develop research and grant proposals, how to develop a program on a limited budget, and how to effectively mobilize interest around a program. Pulling examples from non-profits, scientific research, and private-sector consulting, students will develop skills needed to develop their ideas and careers. As a preparation for the seminar, students will be expected to take a free grantwriting course at The Foundation Center and to explore the grants database of the Center. As an output, students will be expected to write their own program proposal and pitch for use in The Interdisciplinary Job Search Panel.
