Truman State University is offering interested students the opportunity to acquire valuable skills in grantwriting in a convenient and affordable way with sections available for both undergraduate and graduate students.
The primary objective of this class is to teach students about the process of writing winning grant proposals. After the class students will have acquired the knowledge, skills, and confidence to write winning grants, and as a consequence, produce programs that benefit the world around them. Under the guidance of the instructor, all students will collaborate on the submission of one or more actual grants to government agencies or foundations.

Check back here to see registration dates for upcoming grantwriting courses as they become available.
Current Truman students can simply register for the course like they do their other courses.
Those who are not current students at Truman State University will need to apply.
Non-degree-seeking application – for those who just want to take a course or two but are not interested in pursuing an entire degree program.
Once a student’s non-degree seeking application has been submitted and reviewed, a member of the Truman Institute’s staff will manually register the student in the section of the course indicated on the application and send them an email containing instructions for paying the tuition, logging in to the course, etc.
Important: Because this course is a 500-level course, students taking the course at either the undergraduate or graduate level should have sufficient academic preparation to complete graduate-level work. Because the course is focused on writing, students who have not had prior writing coursework, and/or significant on-the-job writing experience may find this course difficult to complete. We recommend students have academic preparation or the equivalent work experience comparable to a senior-level undergraduate to pursue this course.
If you are a K-12 teacher applying as a Non-Degree Seeking Student, please be sure to let the Institute for Academic Outreach know as K-12 professional development discounts apply. These discounts are not available for students currently enrolled in the MAE program.
Application for full admission – for those interested in pursuing an entire degree program.
