intervention used to address the program outcome, school and community leadership in its application to improving Hispanic 8th grade females is a creation of a community/school task force, or focus group to address these issues.

To make this decision I used mostly my intuition as it guided me towards this answer. Its simple and the research suggests it can be effectively and economically put into place.

This intervention is superior because it does not exist in the current school's system. Its superiority is measured by the amount of effort that is being placed in the intervention.

This intervention will draw upon selected members of the school's faculty extra time. This task force may need to replenish this resource.

Grant and Wilson I Propose That Doing

Words: 670 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Research Proposal Paper #: 24623211

Grant and ilson

I propose that doing a comparison of Presidents Ulysses S. Grant and oodrow ilson would allow for a comprehensive understanding of how the leadership styles of these two men shaped the United States of America during their respective administrations. They will be compared in terms of their public and political leadership, how they functioned as Chief Executive and the leader of the Executive Branch, and how they functioned as Chief Legislator including their relationship with Congress.

Public and Political Leader:

During his initial run for office, Grant was a very popular man with the American public. He was considered a hero of the Civil ar. His accomplishments included expansion of Republicanism into the south which yielded the first elections of black Congressmen. However, his administration was marred by corruption and he has gone down in history as one of the least effective presidents politically (ilentz 2010).

It is imperative that the proposal writer makes certain the proposal is a good fit for the funding organization. There are many worthwhile causes in the world and even the richest foundations fund only a relatively few. For best results, writers will help develop proposals that align closely with the funder's mission. Writers should look at the mission of their own organization, and consider its objectives, goals and strategic tasks as they seek funders. Successful proposals match projects to an organization's mission as well as match them to a grantor's mission. It usually does not work to create a proposal just for the sake of applying for a grant. eaders of proposals will have difficulty in justifying funding when the missions of grantor and grantee are too far apart.

Writers will work with proponents within their own organization to develop programs or project ideas that will appeal to grantors. The…… [Read More]

esponding to equests for Proposal (FPs)

In accomplishing equests for Proposal or FPs, specific steps must be planned ahead of time to ensure that the proposal that will be developed is not only compliant to the standards set by the funding organization or agency, but also to ensure that the proposal is of exceptional quality that it would result to a successful outcome of the bid for the project/program.

One of the first steps one must take in preparing the proposal is to read carefully through the FP guidelines. As Henson (1997) asserted in his article, the proposal writer must "follow the FP guidelines precisely" (137). All donor agencies and grant funders require applicants to strictly follow the FP guidelines, otherwise this could lead to disqualification of the organization or individual to bid. Usually, the requirements involve official documents that prove the organization's existence and work in a particular…… [Read More]

Grant Proposal for Strengthening the Family Unit

Program Design and Implementation

The overall design and structure of the program will orbit around multiple activities and methodologies which are designed to fortify the overall family unit, most notably the parental unit. Parenting is an extremely challenging endeavor and one which can put a considerable strain on a marriage -- even the strongest marriage. Thus, one of the foremost aspects of the program in general will consist of a parenting skills training program to minimize behavior problems in young children (particularly when these children are at the most difficult age) by bolstering the level of parent self-efficacy through beneficial parenting behaviors and overall child discipline strategies (NEPP, 2012).

Many of the strategies used in this case will be modeled after the Chicago Parent Program (CPP), which is an extremely well organized program that is founded in the notion that parents play the…… [Read More]

The key to this program's success is changing the way the citizens approach their daily lives, without changing the traditions and practices that are unique to the community.

Teaching children how to cope with this unique conundrum will be difficult but could be the most successful approach in the long run. If the program is successful in slowing down the rate of obesity found in the younger citizens, then it could have longer lasting effects than the same program instituted with older citizens. One study showed that obese children are much more susceptible to diseases, especially diabetes than adults are with the same body mass index.

The study concluded that, "After stratification age and body mass index (BMI) the risk ratio for diabetes in Anti-HCV+ participants increased when age decreased and body mass index levels increased" (ang, ang, Yao, Chang, Chou, 2007, p. 202).

Grant Proposal for Women's Wellness Center

This proposal is for a grant of $125,000 for the operation of an inner-city Women's Center. These funds will be used for staffing and operating the center and for supplying guidance, informative literature, and assistance to women seeking an alternative to abortion.

Women's Wellness Center and History

In 2011, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released data regarding the number of abortions performed three years prior in 2008. Considering that an epidemic is defined as a "widespread occurrence of an infectious disease in a community at a particular time," or in meningococcal terms, a rate of attack that is more than 15 cases for every 100,000 people (Green, Swartz, Mayshar, Lev, Levanthal, Slater, Shemer, 2002), it may be appropriate to state that abortion in America has reached beyond epidemic proportions.

Computers will be updated on an annual basis, with replacement being taken into consideration every four years. In order to maintain cost-effectiveness, leasing programs and low-cost computer programs will allow students and teachers the capacity to access more applications and content which is relevant to consumers but nearly unaffordable in many educational systems.

Even in the purported technology rich Asian countries, women are still in need of special attention with regard to technology access and organization. Without such address Lui argues that the feminist agenda will falter and that real change will not be achieved until access is equal. (Lui, 2004)

As an aside, the gender that is most often associated with a strongly developed social skill surrounding multitasking, the internet as a structure should be more easily understood than almost any other modern structure, by women. The system is a vast spiderweb (that may even be to structured an analogy) of interconnected items and resources that are more multifaceted and fantastic than any one could completely understand in a short time. Internet skills are therefore, forgive the pun, hardwired into our gendered skill set and should be embraced rather than feared.

The market structure of Turkey is quite different from that of the UK. The cultural composition of Turkey is not a guarantee of making proportional sales. The reasons for the low performance of the company's product could as well reverberate in Turkey. If the UK market that the company is accustomed to has failed to yield expected returns, the viability of the company's product in Turkey is doubtful. However, considering the expectation of government grants that will offset the company's tax liability; the venture assumes a would-be profit generator. The company cannot bank on this tax relief as a basis to carry on with the proposed relocation to Turkey. The reason for that being that the amount accruable from the tax relief is on a portion of the entire expenditure of the company. The long run effect of this is still profitable to the company.

Change Proposal

The Situation

Spending any time at all at one of the nation's first, oldest and largest state theaters, a founding member of the League of esident Theaters, brings to mind only one phrase above all others: "Off with their heads." The theatrical organization is run as if by the mad Queen in Alice in Wonderland. No real management is performed. Instead, edicts are issued by the CEO and founder and carried out without regard to the bottom line or any standards of acceptable organizational behavior. In short, there is the rule of fear, and nothing more.

When the theatre runs into problems, the solution is not to find remedies for those problems, but to replace personnel -- itself a highly expensive proposition -- and seek more government and corporate grants to cover the costs of operating the theater.

Educational Grants School Districts Across the Country

Educational Grants

chool districts across the country are experiencing shrinking budgets. One way to increase the funds available for education is to apply for educational grants. They can take many forms, including those requiring rigorous research designs as well as others that might provide funds for equipment or the money to implement promising but unproven programs.

Two organizations that provide educational grant money are the Beaumont Foundation of America and the Institute of Education ciences.

The Institute of Educational ervices (IE) requires an extensive application and applies rigorous scientific research principles when considering which applications to fund. Their specific focus is to increase the body of knowledge regarding best practices in education. Their goal is to fund research being done in the "practice community" -- that is, schools and school districts (IE, 2005). They have a preference for rigorously controlled studies that involve students from multiple schools who are randomly…… [Read More]

The reasons behind this belief are based on the fact that the center can also support the business objectives of contributors by improving their market perception within the community or creating tax deduction opportunities. The next $100,000 is expected to be donated by not-for-profit organizations which militate for the proper integration of youth, as well as for responsible citizenship and environmental protection.

Institutional economics -- Essay proposal

The internationalized economic crisis is now the buzzword across the globe. The impacts it has generated are complex and dramatic, to include corporate bankruptcies or the loss of the population's savings. But aside from these generally accepted dimensions of the crisis, fact remains that the topics pegged to the crisis are more multifaceted and go beyond the impacts on the population and the economic agents. The impacts are as such also felt at the level of the institutions.

The proposal is then that of assessing the subprime mortgage crisis through different lenses -- those of the effects generated upon the institutions. Most of the effects are expected to be felt by the lending institutions -- both…… [Read More]

Policy Proposal:

To the Facilities Director of De Anza College

While the recently completed multimillion dollar facilities expansion project has undoubtedly increased De Anza College's regional influence and enhanced the institution's ability to attract quality students, in our breathless rush towards progress certain public safety measures have been neglected. The completion of the Off-Campus Dorm unit has undoubtedly enabled a greater number of upperclassmen to make the campus area of Cupertino their home, however, the location of this residence hall may result in unnecessary injuries or deaths due to traffic collisions. Because the Off-Campus Dorm is situated north of Stevens Creek Boulevard, one of the city's more heavily trafficked eight-lane thoroughfares, a significant number of students are now forced to cross this busy street during their daily commutes from dorm to campus.

Although the intersection currently contains a crosswalk to facilitate pedestrian movement, we contend that this crosswalk…… [Read More]

4 trillion and $3.6 trillion, an impressive boost to the U.S. economy in those years, the IPC explains. A study conducted by Arizona State University determined that when a person has a bachelor's degree that person earns about $750,000 more over the course of a lifetime of earning than a person with just a high school diploma earns.

The data from that study indicates that as of 2006, those working without a high school diploma earned approximately $419 per week and had an unemployment rate of 6.8%, the IPC explains. Those with a bachelor's degree earned approximately $962 per seek and their rate of unemployment was only 2.3%; over their careers college graduates earn "in excels of 60% more than a high school graduate, and workers with advanced degrees earn two to three times as much as high school graduates" (IPC, p. 2).

Analyzing Organizations and Grants

Words: 643 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 48171514

Grants --

Organizations and Grants

You are more likely to receive grants if you can write good proposals that provide a holistic description of the programs you run in your organization. However, it should be noted that you may have great writing skills, but fail in the overall design of the programs. Similarly, if the program is well designed but the proposal is written poorly, the chances of securing funding diminish. Well written proposals must be accompanied with well designed programs (Kansas State University, 2015).

The Development of Grant Applications and Their Locations

A lot has come to light with regard to the way government agencies and foundations provide funding (The Kansas State University (2015). Finding funding agencies that cater for the needs of your type of organization is important. The format of the proposal and the amount that can be availed varies between organizations. One of the qualities of…… [Read More]

ar Powers Act of 1973 was an important piece of legislation during the Vietnam ar. The intention, per the wording of the act itself, was "to fulfill the intent of the framers of the Constitution of the United States and insure that the collective judgment of both the Congress and the President will apply to the introduction of United States Armed Forces into hostilities, or into situations where imminent involvement in hostilities is clearly indicate by the circumstances, and to the continued use of such forces in hostilities in such situations" (ar).

Though more and more organizations and communities have begun to accept a similar concept that they term networking. Networking can be anything from an informal grouping of people with similar goals meeting to discuss how each of their separate specialties and/or networks can aide a common goal, to personal/professional formal organizations that meet at given times throughout the year to meet new members of the business community and seek out connections to achieve personal/professional goals. As Taylor points out networking can take many forms but exists in and outside of most organizations in some form to elicit actions that met the differing needs of organizations. (Taylor, 2000, p. 251) Barabasi, discusses the nature of networking, though a concise analysis of how organizations and individuals influence one another to elicit results, in one example he states:

For example, in Silicon Valley the extensive movements of labor between companies create dense personal…… [Read More]

Wood, Whiteley & Zhang also point out that in a 1993 study by Chu and Ju, 70% of 2,000 Chinese respondents to a poll, "preferred to utilize the concepts of Guanxi over normal bureaucratic channels to advance personal interests and to solve problems." (2002, p.264) the implication of this popularity is that Guanxi is a method that is trusted and predictable in a cultural context and therefore frequently relied upon to resolve conflict and create needed changes. It is also frequently pointed out that the system is best utilized in structures that are within a weak legal and regulatory system, as due to this system dealings are more likely to rely on personal relationships more than abstract legal or moral concepts. (2002, p.264)

Review of Literature:

As the economy goes global, (Barabasi, 2003, p. 202) per say, the ideals that drive business may possibly become more universalized, likely to lean on the ideals of international markets, rather than on traditional concepts of business structure and leadership, as more and more foreign owned companies begin to do business in China as well as elsewhere. Yet, it must also be said that is there is a system that is, "better" than a western (market dominator) position than it should be explored and possibly utilized within the context of the nation, from which it comes and elsewhere if it translates to other business cultures. The difficulty for western business is that the concept of Guanxi does not easily translate to western models, and it is given a decidedly negative spin when it is only marginally understood. The western concept of "who you know not what you know" is decidedly contradictory to the individualism that at least guides the idealism of the nation, even in the highly

Proposal for Unmet Community Need

Geagua County, OH

Planning -- The most effective strategy within a community for any public health issue is two-fold: education and focus. To accomplish this at the community level, there needs to be a broad level of focus and support from all levels of the government: local, State and Federal, in order for there to be a consistent and proactive message. Education should begin at the elementary school level, with teaching talking about substances, abuse and alternatives; and move through the school system as appropriate for the cognitive abilities of various age groups. In this way, the community can collaborate with schools to provide initiatives and programs that address the problem prior to it becoming as endemic, and offer proposed solutions in a way that almost everyone involved knows they can receive help if necessary. The educational process must also be pervasive and accessible -- people need a number to…… [Read More]

The very fact that the U.S.A. Patriot Act was renewed in 2010 (albeit with some modifications) shows alert citizens that public safety will most often trump personal privacy and in some cases, a person's civil rights. The Find Law organization alludes to the 4th Amendment in pointing out that the legal approach to warrantless searches has "been broadened" in the past few years. The Court has given the green light to searches that are justified by "special needs beyond the normal need for law enforcement," and this ruling could apply to use of ALPR data-gathering (Find Law, 2010, p. 2). In fact, instances where "warrant and probably cause requirements are dispensed with…in all of these instances the government's interest has been found to outweigh the individual's (Find Law, p. 3).

The bottom line is that while is it helpful for future grant writers to gain knowledge of models, to get a grasp of "scaffolding, coaching, and collaboration" in the classroom environment, there is no substitute for being out in the society, in formal settings, to collaborate with "experts, colleagues, and peers" in learning the ropes of grant proposal writing and getting projects funded.

Attending workshops, conferences, and signing up for training sessions are all necessary when going for large dollar grants from institutions like the National Institutes of Health and other government granting agencies. "Learning and doing are inseparable," Ding writes; without the classroom knowledge, the social collaboration and "real world experiences" of meeting key people and attending high-powered training sessions, the grant writer seeking funds from big government sources is going to fail most of the time.

Public agencies in the healthcare environment are prime examples of successful interdepartmental cooperation in most cases, but, there are also examples where they can demonstrate both internal and external in-fighting. "The health sector workforce, which usually comprises a significant element within the total public sector workforce, may be either directly employed by the public sector health system, or work in public-funded agencies or organizations (e.g., social insurance funded).

esearchers have an occasion to further organizational science and to make research practical by producing information that can impact changing organizational forms and circumstances. Pragmatically, academic researchers are not likely to get access to a company that is going through change unless the practitioners believe the research will be helpful (Gibson & Mohrman, 2001).

There have been a number of calls to augment the significance and effectiveness of organizational science to companies. The usefulness challenge cannot be defined merely as getting practitioners to value and include what academics learn. It is believed that the usefulness of research depends, somewhat, on the degree to which the perspectives of organization members are incorporated in research procedures and the results are included into those members' organization design activities that take place as their company adjusts to its changing environment. esearch is more likely to be seen as useful if there are occasions for…… [Read More]

Since this scenario includes a complete destruction of City Hall it is necessary to have an alternative facility that can act as a backup to the main systems functions of the city. Also, the safety of the citizen base is paramount. The citizens of the city need to have all of the city functions available to them if the need should arise. Because these two extremes are involved (ie, complete destruction of city hall and the continued safety of the citizens), the recovery time frame should be as minimal as possible.
