The final project for the class will be to respond to a real RFP (Request for Proposals). You will write a response, although you will not necessarily submit it. You have two options:
The procedure for this assignment is as follows:
The grad students in the course will constitute a review panel (or two—no one will review their own grant). I will notify the grad students by e-mail who will be on their review team and what grants they are to review. They may (should) communicate with each other by e-mail, and use the procedure in the “Grant Review Process” link to the Course Calendar. Grant reviews must be posted to D2L by the due date (April 30). Again, there is no such thing as a late review—if it is not done on time, it is not considered (and you don’t get paid for those reviews—or, in this case, you do not earn any points for this assignment).
Finally, you might want to look at a successful grant. An example of a successful proposal (for a large federal grant program) is available here. This proposal is much more elaborate than the one that AgStar is requesting.
