Kate Norton ’01 Speaks in PBPL 45 Class

On Thursday, November 5, 2015, Kate Norton ‘01, Director, Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations at Dartmouth College, visited Professor Ron Shaiko's PBPL 45: Introduction to Public Policy Research class.  Norton explained the various interactions that the College has with the foundation world and gave a detailed description of the grant proposal process.  She informed the students of the various online resources available through the Dartmouth Library and provided useful tips on selecting foundations and crafting strong and effective grant proposals.  The students' final class project involves crafting a grant proposal to fund a program that addresses a real world policy problem.  Students must utilize an existing organization on campus or an off-campus nongovernmental organization as their implementing entity and then select an actual foundation that would likely fund the proposal they draft.
