Course Description: 

The Grant Writing for Animals: Wildlife Conservation in Africa class partners with the Kasese Wildlife Conservation Awareness Organization (http://www.kasesewildlife.org) to further its goals of creating wildlife awareness and increasing conservation efforts in Uganda (East Africa) through the education of Ugandan communities.  Students will participate in the various aspects of grant writing, including researching funding sources, ascertaining the needs of the community partner, proposal writing, editing, and formatting.  A significant portion of this course involves online discussions regarding critical issues in preserving wildlife. 

The end project will be a presentation and portfolio of grant proposals addressing the current needs of the Kasese Wildlife Conservation Awareness Organization. Please contact Kimberly Mukobi, kmukobi@pdx.edu, for more information.
