Grant Proposal Development for Libraries takes a scenario-driven approach to learning to develop effective and successful grant proposals. Students will learn the components of a successful grant proposal and will develop each component of the proposal by developing a grant proposal prospectus for a real world scenario during the course. Components of grant proposals that are covered in the course include the organization proposing the grant, with a focus to understanding the costs and benefits of a grant to the organization, the funding agency, including selecting the right agency for a proposal, the audience for the grant, including understanding the needs of the audience and engaging the audience and the innovation and impact of the grant concept.

Dr. Agnew discussed this course at length on the LJA News and Comment blog.
