This class associates training in professional practices with an overview of social, political and philosophical contexts of the grant funding in the United States. We will approach topics through a practical and theoretical lens to consider how the relationship between granting organizations and the administrator operates. Through a robust practice peer reviews, and a final mock grant application, you will refine an approach to the ecology of grants. You are expected to read and summarize the assigned texts, participate in discussions, introduce your ideas and questions to the class, write several iterations of texts, and create one grant application project. The course will be supplemented with conversations with practicing administrators from the executive director branch of organizations. The course is comprised of five phases that overlap with the germination of a grant application. Students are expected to contribute to course through their own research findings and iterative versions of their projects.
