Cultural institutions often rely on grant writing to raise additional funds. The successful grant writing process is complex, and success depends on understanding the history of the granting organization, internal institutional dynamics and the clarity of the story of impact.
This two-credit course will be taught by Leslie Edwards, an archivist for the Archives of Michigan at the Michigan History Center, in the Spring semester. There are no pre-requisites and it is open to SIS and non-SIS students.
The need to preserve websites is a challenge both culturally and technologically. This is a growing field with a limited amount of professionals having developed these unique skills.
