This assignment will require students to identify and prepare a competitive, peer-reviewed grant application in their chosen discipline. The grant application must be between 2500 and 3000 words and will need to demonstrate a practical application of the research skills covered in the unit.
The grant application can be for a research proposal, which will require background research, a literature review, research methodology, timeline, and budget. Alternatively, it can be for a practical project; however, the project must have a research component.
This may be applied research in the design of the project or research conducted after completion to evaluate success. Practical project applications must have background research (which can come from the literature review), project outline, research methodology, timeline, and budget.
