Students in this Capstone will partner with Portland State’s The College of the Arts, COTA, (   Class uses an experiential approach: that is, students learn to write compelling grants by engaging in the process of writing actual proposals to be used by COTA in its pursuit of funding.


Under the leadership of Dean Barbara A. Sestak, the College of the Arts includes the four schools: Architecture, Art & Design, Music, and Theatre & Film. The College is home to more than 200 teaching faculty, staff and instructors, and to more than 2750 gifted young artists and designers, film makers, musicians, performers and students of architecture. Rich collaborations with the city's major arts institutions and businesses provide an environment in which students flourish.  Students may be involved in writing grants for projects in any of the four Schools.  Specific projects will be determined as part of the course.
