This badge explores how to successfully research and identify grants that apply to your professional career. Using open educational learning materials, students will learn about different resources available to them for grant research. Students will also learn about how to identify the most applicable grants for them or their company. At the conclusion of the course, students will create a grant writing action plan they would potentially like to complete for one of the grants they have identified.
