The Child Development Lab at Northern Illinois University has had a history of helping Bachelor degree candidates receive their diplomas with the completion of the internship/practicum at their lab. While using their facilities as research for multiple classes, it was discovered that they were in need of new playground materials. It was decided something would be done to help gain financial funding for this project. Multiple sources were considered and using a grant database to find a grant suitable for the lab’s needs proved to be the best idea. After the attendance of grant application training, an interview with the associate director of the lab (expert informant on the subject), research of playground equipment, and many grant searches, past grant guidelines from Hasbro Foundation were determined as the most fitting source. A grant application was written to complete the process.
