提案写作既是一门艺术，也是一门科学. The best proposal writers are strong communicators who provide "big picture" context and important details in a clear and straightforward manner. 除了, effective proposal writers keep their audience's interests in mind by following application guidelines and conveying the "fit" between a proposal and a given funder's priorities. A good budget reflects the proposal narrative by describing the realistic anticipated costs associated with a given scope of work.
在这个密集的, 无学分的课程, you will review basic concepts about proposals and budgets and then hone your proposal and budget development skills through at-home assignments, 课堂练习, 和口头报告.
