Spring, 1 Credit, 5-week Session 2, Wed 5:30-6:45pm, Lecture: SEEC S125

Instructor: Carlo Salvinelli, N285D

This is a project-based course. An overview of strategies and best practices to develop effective grant proposals for international development interventions, and major funding mechanisms and processes will be presented. Each team of students will work with a local or international NGO to identify a potential donor and create a grant proposal for an international development program or project. The proposal will be based on the information provided and collected about the local context and on the NGO’s experience and expertise; it will also have to respect priorities and requirements of beneficiaries, principles and goals of the NGO, and guidelines of the donor.
