Professional Writing Major Gains Grant Writing Experience

women-in-cities-300x193While studying at our Montreal campus in Fall 2014, Professional Writing major, Melissa Nelson, gained valuable experience as a grant writer.

During her semester abroad, Melissa wrote grants for Women in Cities International, an international organization working to promote women’s participation in urban development. “I’ve been able to propose program developments to the board of directors, edit modules written in English by non-native speaking coworkers, research new funding opportunities and evaluate the feasibility of others, and reach out to potential funders to discuss possible future collaborations.”
