TIPS FOR WRITING A SUCCESSFUL GRANT APPLICATION
From The Education Fund Grant Committee

  1. Write your grant separately, not on the application. Edit with other readers. Then enter the grant into the application. Once you begin entering, finish. You cannot go back and make changes.
  2. Write in sentences (except budget). Avoid education jargon. Do not include standards.
  3. Need: Describe the specific problems the students in this project have. Briefly, describe your project and items you need to purchase. Then show how this project will help these students solve these learning problems, achieve specific goals, 要有创意. NOTE: If this is not an in-class project, 解释这些学生将在哪里以及如何出席并能够参与,以及该项目如何与课堂作业相关.
  4. Project details: Describe overall project. Focus on one major example and go in to detail. Make it sound so interesting the judges will want to do it, too!
  5. Student activities: Use lots of “students will do …..“句子. Show them solving problems and being creative.
  6. Timeline: Show how project fits into regular studies, but concentrate on this project.
  7. Evaluation: Base evaluation on this project, not the whole year. 它可以是一个测试, but can also be a demonstration, 表演, 作文, 实验, 竞争, or other creative and authentic evaluation.
