Explain strategies and best practices you might apply if you do/do not get funded. How would you respond to funder feedback?
Part of what makes a discussion a discussion and not a lecture is the back-and-forth, in-depth, animated interaction of at least two people. If you start a topic and none of your peers are responding to your post, consider what you can do to get the conversation going. Include something that would elicit further thoughts and different opinions from peers. Validate your opinions with references and links to the sources you used so that your peers can read them for themselves. See your Discussion Rubric in the Course Information Tab for specific grading requirements.
In this final Discussion of the course, consider what you think are the most challenging aspects of grant writing. Which areas were most difficult for you? What do you think might be most difficult in future situationsworking with your organization or working with partners? Why? After moving through so many steps, how do you think you might respond if a grant application is rejected? Would you consider it a rejection? What approaches might you use to address other post-submission issues?
