"Undergraduate Grantwriting: Fostering the Sustainability of Civic Engagement"

13th Annual Lily Conference of College and University Teaching

Colleges and universities prepare students for excellence in their chosen career paths. Students who have participated in hands-on learning experiences are better equipped to handle the responsibilities of employment and civic engagement in the future. Grantwriting courses provide students with applicable skills that enhance their marketability to organizations because they are capable of generating revenue. As such, grantwriting is a valuable skill that provides benefits for students, as well as the communities in which they live.
