Learning by Giving

This interdisciplinary course provides the opportunity for students to engage with a local nonprofit organization as a grant writer, while learning the conceptual material that supports this endeavor. Faculty from the School of Social Work and the School of Management in partnership with the Scott/Ross Center for Community Service will facilitate integration of theory and practice through writing a grant proposal. Teams of students will join with, learn from, and ultimately serve as grant writers for local nonprofit community partners culminating in a competitive decision making process for awarding multiple grants totaling $10,000. Relevant conceptual material regarding philanthropy, community engagement, leadership, team development, and the importance of supporting organizations that empower girls and/or women will serve as a guide for student learning, analysis and decision making. The course will provide ample opportunity for reflection and discussion on all of the inter-related topics. Of particular importance to this course is the culmination of awarding actual grants to community organizations. Learning by Giving has generously provided $10,000 to fund the course grant making project.
