A Guide to Writing Adult Education Grant Proposals.
James, Waynne; And Others
This guide is designed to help adult educators to get through the grant application process required by the Bureau of Adult and Community Education, Florida Department of Education. It provides information on the four stages of the process: planning the project, writing the proposal, submitting the application package, and receiving notification. Chapter 1 provides information on preliminary steps. It discusses state funds available for adult and community education projects and important elements to consider during the planning stage, including national and state priorities, innovation, needs assessment, cooperation/coordination, dissemination, and project continuation. Chapter 2 focuses on proposal content. Topics include the narrative, need for the project, plan of operation, goals, connecting goals and objectives, measurable and achieving objectives, timelines, personnel, reasonable costs, budget rationale, evaluation, facilities, abstract, appendixes, project completion, dissemination, documents needed, and project title. Chapter 3 offers suggestions on the post-application period. It discusses what to do if the project is rejected, renegotiated, or funded. Appendixes, amounting to approximately one-half of the guide, contain the following: titles of previously funded grant proposals; three domains of behavioral objectives; a verb list for stating objectives; sample tables for a plan of operation, vitae, and organizational charts; and 11 forms.
