Responding to Funder Feedback
By the end of the course, you will be submitting your finalized grant application for grading by your professor. Your work doesn’t stop after submission, however. Once you receive a response from your grant application, you have some decisions to make.
In preparation for this Discussion, review this module’s Learning Resources. Consider how you might respond if your grant is approved, or if your application is rejected. With this in mind:
By Day 3 of Week 11
Address the following in a Discussion board post:
Explain strategies and best practices you might apply if you do/do not get funded.
How would you respond to funder feedback?
Now, imagine that you do get funded. Please explain how you will respond to the administrative matters (i.e., reporting, managing staff, project management, etc.).
Briefly describe record-keeping strategies for your project.
Be sure to support your analysis and conclusions with citations and references in APA format from the Learning Resources and your own research.
