Students’ Grant Earns $6K for Genesis

A local nonprofit organization has earned a $6,000 grant, thanks to the work of two Belmont students. As part of the fall 2013 Social Entrepreneurship 4150 Grant Writing course,  environmental science majors Ashley Allen and Erin Pitts wrote a grant for Genesis Learning Centers. The Memorial Foundation and the Christy-Houston Foundation funded the grant, Genesis Learning Center Autistic Sensory Room Project. Genesis Executive Director Terry Adams also has used some of the information from the grant in a contract application to Metro-Nashville Schools and a grant application to the HCA Foundation.
