Grants and Proposal Writing Course Offered


SEPT. 16, 2005--Understand grants and build valuable proposal writing skills as part of a workshop starting Sept. 29 offered by the University of Wisconsin-River Falls. The workshop will also be broadcast over the interactive television network to Cumberland, Spring Valley and Grantsburg high schools.

Bill Campbell, director of grants and research at UW-River Falls, will lead participants in the exploration of funding sources as well as writing inquiry letters and proposal narratives and developing budgets.

Over the past 15 years at UW-RF, Campbell has written proposals resulting in more than $20 million in grants.

The course can be taken for two graduate credits in one of six disciplines or as a noncredit option. All participants will complete a proposal for critique by peers, and graduate credit students will be asked to submit a final proposal for review by an experienced reading panel.  

The course is Thursdays, 4:30 to 6:30 p.m., from Sept. 29 to Nov. 17 on the UW- River Falls campus and via interactive television at Cumberland, Spring Valley and Grantsburg High Schools.  

The noncredit fee is $379. Contact the office of outreach and graduate studies for graduate tuition rates for the credit option, Angela Whitaker, 715-425-3256 or 800-228-5607 or send an email to angela.whitaker@uwrf.edu . For more information visit the web site at www.uwrf.edu/outreach .
