Writing a grant proposal is a challenging task. Teaching undergraduate students to write a grant proposal is even more challenging! It can also be a bit scary when you know that you will be sharing your students work with your community partner. However, the effort is well worth the results. If given the opportunity, students will rise to the challenge and produce, not only a grant proposal of which they and you as the instructor can be proud, but a proposal that can be a vehicle for making a difference in the lives of families in your community.
