Abstract (summary)

The purpose of this project was to write a grant proposal for a research project. Throughout the literature on alternative education, studies have found that alternative education schools have been ineffective in significantly reducing problem behavior among their students, and therefore, their students continue to be at high risk for problem behavior. The proposed research project was designed to utilize risk and protective factors identified in previous studies to explore their relationships with problem behavior among alternative education students. After reviewing the literature on risk and protective factors for problem behavior, identifying a funding source, and conducting a needs assessment, a grant proposal was composed that requested funding for the proposed research project from the William T. Grant Foundation.
