To prepare graduate students for their future careers and to help solve a variety of problems (e.g., societal, environmental, economic, practical, and theoretical), grant writing courses or seminars should be considered with respect to their required or elective curriculum. This work intends to provide an example of a previously taught course concerning the setting up and developing of a quality graduate-level grant writing class in Sport Management to provide necessary knowledge and experience for future scholars of the field. A multi-step approach and discussion of the grant writing process modeled after an actual grant writing course dedicated to Sport Management graduate students is presented to develop an appreciation for research, collaboration, and technical writing skills among prospective scholars. Finally, course evaluation components and a review of the course are included to make recommendations for future efforts.
