Read through the evaluation criteria of the grant

Evaluate your capacity and resources carefully

Step 1: Continued...
Step 3: Continued...
Thorough answers: Don't fail to respond to any question or criterion, even if the answer is brief or negative or doesn't seem to apply to your project
Examples and Tips
TIP: Read (quickly) the successful projects on the grantor's website to get a sense of what they want to support.
Is it feasible? Make sure the intent and specifics of the grant opportunity fit your project.
Decide upon a grant opportunity
Statement of Need
TIP: Don't assume the readers of your application will know anything about your circumstances or project.
TIP: Start in a way that grabs the interest of the reader: "What would it take to make sure that all 4th grade classes in our 12 area schools study a high-quality unit on East Asia?"
Give each section of your application a brief subheading
Don't overlook internet dissemination! Grantors are very interested in seeing results published online in a broad and accessible way
Carefully read the fine print, and pay attention to every detail! Double-check and revise at least TWICE!
Realistic timeline: Include one, either separately or within the text
Clear evaluation methods: Describe the criteria you will use (qualitative or quantitative), and show how you will obtain the data
Wide impact/reach: Prove how the project will reach a larger audience beyond your main target group
Clarity: Don't assume the reader will know what you mean. Don't use abbreviations (except for "U.S.").
BONUS: Tips on How to be a Successful Applicant
Be clear on how you plan to incorporate what you've learned back into the classroom/curriculum
Express an open-minded attitude and be willing to LEARN
For travel programs: Be flexible in unexpected situations, and be willing to work with others to make the trip a success
