A few words, no more.
What happens when my organization receives such an offer? You’re probably thinking of several things. First, you want to see the proposal for your board or your board of directors, and then you’ll probably want to discuss the matter over lunch or on the phone. Second, you’ll probably want to do another round of consulting and grant-writing.
Can a small-scale grant request and discussion take place in a single meeting at our headquarters? Only if you happen to live within walking distance of our headquarters. If you don’t, you can contact a staff leader who is usually available between 24 and 48 hours a day.
How does a grant proposal get accepted? The process is similar to most requests for a grant: Our representatives must conduct a full assessment of the need for assistance, and determine what the best use of that funding will be. They then work with our grant recipient to get a contract that will enable the recipient to fund the work, including the full price of the research. They have to go through a number of final steps. This takes as long as the project is expected to take. In addition to the actual project and the negotiation, you’ll have to review the project and agree with the recipient on the funding structure and time frame, if applicable. At all times, you will be responsible for keeping a journal article up-to-date and in the public domain (if applicable). When you are ready, you can either send to a publication in the area where we work (most of the grants in the Institute’s area receive a copy each week), or you can email us at [email protected] with a description of your proposed project.
Does a grant proposal have to be for a specific research area? We often receive grants of $20-$50k in each year, including research grants of some amount for the grant proposal itself, but it is generally not necessary to work on a specific research project in order to be considered for a grant proposal. Please note that we do not do all of our grant proposals from a single funding source; the most important factor is the proposed research area. You should consult with an existing member with appropriate research expertise about whether a particular research area is being funded in the area you plan to work in.
