This Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) webinar was held on January 21, 2021, as the second of two trainings to help prospective applicants find and apply for funding opportunities that address their needs.
This is a project-based course that covers the complete process of grant writing and management including: identification of an achievable and fundable project, research and assessment of viable funding sources, funder relations, proposal writing, budget development, and final preparation of a full grant proposal package for submission. Students will gain an understanding of the nonprofit funding environments and become familiar with tools and resources available to assist them as they seek funds for their projects.
This is an advanced graduate grant writing and oral presentation course. The objectives of this course are to challenge students: (1) to critically evaluate their own research in an effort to clearly define the significance and innovation of their project, (2) to begin to develop novel ideas based on their research efforts that have the potential to significantly impact their field of study, and (3) to prepare students to present these ideas orally and in writing in a manner that is both logical and convincing. Prerequisites: BIMD 501 and BIMD 502, or consent of instructor.
