    Before you get started...

    • Is your affiliate in good standing and eligible to apply for the grant?

    • WATCH YOUR FILE SIZE! No one file should be larger than 1MB! The ideal application is one document (either Word doc or PDF) with pictures embedded within the document. Click here for a sample application.

    • Plan and prepare, don’t rush. Give yourself enough time (1-2 weeks if possible) to prepare the grant application.

    • Deadlines. Will you be able to meet the program due date/execute the project on-time?

    • Grant writing. Who in your organization is best suited to effectively write the grant proposal?

    • Edit and proof. Arrange with colleagues, department heads or mentors to review a first draft to make sure you are on the mark.
