Creating the budget first helped guide us in what we really wanted to get out of the grant. Once we started discussing what we wanted/needed, we then had to justify to each other. This gave us more purpose, and made the other aspects of the grant easier.

Nellie Mae Education Foundation has a detailed website that provides clear information on its funding priorities, grant opportunities, and even highlights the foundation's impact. I would recommend exploring their webpage and then contacting a program officer if you have any questions.

I found that the questions in the downloadable RFP were different than the actual online application. There was also a word count limit that our team did not anticipate. I suspect this is a common issue. My advise would be to simply check the online application before you start planning and writing. The published RFP is very helpful in setting the priority and context but not in the subtler written requirements.
