Five students on the Northwest Missouri State Campus spent their semester writing grant proposals that would benefit both students and the community.
Grantsmanship is a class offered at Northwest Missouri State University.
Course Instructor Dr. Terry Robertson says the class focuses on writing grant proposals and getting support for projects while looking into your community's needs.
Each student is responsible for writing three proposals, one of them as a group.
Together the class proposals were worth more than $550,000, and each student received funding for at least one of their proposals.
One proposal secured funding from South Paws Veterinary Clinic and Wal-Mart for the Children and Family Center of Northwest Missouri.
The Children and Family Center allows pets when victims of abusive relationships come to stay at the shelter.
They were able to buy an outdoor kennel, food, portable carriers and a grooming table with the secured funding.
