How To Plan and Draft Federal and Private Funding Requests.
Dempsey, June; Lowery-Moore, Hollis
Ways to identify possible funding sources for educational institutions are described and steps involved in drafting a proposal are enumerated. It is shown that the first step in proposal writing is to match funding needs with appropriate granting agencies, often using the assistance of offices for research and development or colleagues who have received funding. References that contain information on grant programs are listed and described, along with agencies that fund teaching and learning projects or related programs, or which provide information on federal and foundation funding programs. Proposal drafting steps include assessing capabilities to accomplish requirements of the project, obtaining commitments of support and cooperation for the project, and contacting the funding agency to determine funding possibilities. The types of information required in most proposals are described, and agencies that may be contacted for funding information are listed, as are guides for proposal writing and fund raising. (SW)
