Reviewer 5862 - Grant Applicant - applied in 2017

The proposal was very simple to complete and had plenty of room to explain our program. The grants are not huge, but could definitely make a contribution to a small program or a larger one that needed multiple grants to sustain it. The grant focus is fairly broad, so if you have an opportunity to talk with someone at the organization first (probably their VP of Corporate Strategy), that might help you decide whether to apply.

Pros

Risk taker, Friendly, Builds relationships, Likes site visits, "Gets" nonprofits and issues, Openminded, Responsive

The grant application process is not as complicated as others. However, the possibility of having your project funded is slim.

We are currently working on a strategy to help more organizations. We will keep you and other STEM Educators/advocates aware of any changes that can result in more funding.

I can proudly say that we consider all grant applicants equally. In the past, we have funded smaller organizations (under $1MM operating budget) and can happily report they have sustained the program. Then again, there is always room for improvement - we are looking at different ways of changing the grant and will keep you updated on all changes!

It might be worthwhile to run your program ideas before the organization to see if this is within their focus. Also, if you are not funded, ask why. Was your funding request outside of scope, was your budget too big, etc.

Pros

Friendly, Openminded
