Grants & Contracts
Class readings will focus largely on review and critiques of real-world, existing proposals, as well as studying about the process, donors, proposal elements, donor regulations, and emerging funding opportunities. Examples will give students context with regard to proposals from different development thematic areas (e.g. food aid, humanitarian aid, global programs, capacity-building, education, HIV/AIDS/malaria, logistics, human rights, etc.).
This is a graduate level course designed for those pursuing careers in international development and humanitarian assistance, whether from a donor or implementing agency track. Student assignments will be to write an original short proposal, to profile a donor agency, and to critique two existing proposals. Students are encouraged to work in groups. Class discussions will be open to exploring how the competitive industry of aid works today, how NGOs and companies partner on project ideas and bids, and the timing and process of new program development
