Before You ApplyPreparing your materials for applying
The application process involves filling out a six-part online form. Please make sure you have all your information ready to submit before you begin the submission process.
Once you have completed all six parts of the application process, you will receive an email acknowledging the completed application within 10 to 15 minutes. If you do not receive this email, your application may not have been completed properly.
- Part 1 consists of identifying information, such as your name, College, Department, phone number, and university email address and campus mail code.
Part 2 consists of several short essay-style questions which ask you to
summarize aspects of your proposal. Make sure that you do not include
personal identifying information, such as your name, in your answers.
Please review this list and be prepared to supply some input for each of
them. These include the following:
- The title of your project
- A brief summary or abstract (200 words or less) of your proposal
- A brief summary of the purpose, rationale, or problem your proposal seeks to solve
- A brief outline of the steps or methodology you will use in the proposal
- A brief summary of the anticipated outcome of your proposal
- A brief summary of anticipated collaboration with others, if any
- A brief summary of the evaluation plan you propose to use as a measure success
The next three parts of the application process require that you upload file documents in support of your proposal. Any reasonable file format will be accepted (Word, PDF, Excel, plain text).
- Part 3 requires a proposed detailed budget. Have a detailed budget document prepared to upload.
- Part 4 requires at least one letter of support from the Dean of the College or the Department Chair. Have at least one letter document prepared to upload. You may include more than one letter in support of your proposal. The letter should indicate how the project will benefit the college, department, or courses being taught.
- Part 5 requests a document detailing any special technology requirements needed to complete the project. The document is optional only if your proposal has no technology needs. This document will allow the university to utilize any resources already at its disposal in support of your project. Once a grant has been awarded, if desktop support and the grant recipient find a need to adjust the technology required, adjustment will be made to the award amount.
The final part requires you to acknowledge and agree to participate in calls to share the results of your funded project with others.
- Part 6 is the required Acknowledgement and Agreement statement. You must agree to the statement by checking the checkbox.
