Proposal and Grant Writing

TCC 3240 3 Semester Hours
Course Level CPS - Undergraduate Semester
Description Identifies techniques of effective argument and persuasive writing relative to proposal development. Compares and contrasts the various types of proposals generated by both nonprofits and industry and describes the importance of performing detailed audience analysis and researching funding opportunities. Lists and examines the elements of most proposals: cover letter, abstract/executive summary, needs statement, goals and objectives, project design, project evaluation, team members, budget, and time frame. Offers students an opportunity to prepare the elements of a proposal; to execute a step-by-step analysis of a request for proposal (RFP) or bid set; to create and then peer-review a mock proposal in a simulated situation through role-playing and participation on a proposal project team; and to execute collaborative writing assignments.


Students should refer to the CPS Prerequisite Table for course prerequisite and corequisite information.
