WGS 220 - Grant Writing for Social Justice

This course teaches students the mechanics of grant proposal writing and the political and social aspects of philanthropy and funding. We start with an introduction to grantwriting for nonprofit organizations, focusing on arts and social justice organizations. Students will identify sources of grant funding, conduct research to support their applications, and tailor proposals to specific audiences. Students will partner with a professional at a local organization and will write a grant proposal for their community partner. This course combines academic and advocacy goals and provides students with valuable professional experiences that will enhance understandings of the workplace and career opportunities.
