After considering our current timeline and requests from the community wanting to participate, we have decided to extend the proposal submission due date through the end of September. We recognize this window is short and want to accommodate everyone so that more time is available.
This means our current schedule will extend with the following revisions:
Proposal Due Date – Sept. 30th 2020, 11:59PM
Advisory Granting Board Review – Oct. 1
Grant Winner Announcement – Oct. 2
Project Commencement Nov. 2 (or sooner)
We will reevaluate the time needed for project completion and work to identify a completion date and presentation dates.
For those of you who have submitted, or are rushing to complete, you may use extra time to ask more questions and/or develop the proposal further. Don’t hesitate to reach out with questions directly to [email protected]. Whether you have questions or want to generate ideas and review your collection, we can schedule time and include all who are best suited to support you for that discussion. Please let us know how best we can support you.
We are looking forward to hearing about your ideas and we are excited about being able to select one for funding. Please refer to our full Grant Application document and consider joining us for a webinar reviewing the details of the grant and hosting Q&A drop-in sessions during the proposal creation phase.
Watch our informational webinar to get a better understanding of the grant. You can watch the event here.
We will be holding an additional Q+A session via Demio during which Brady Wilks, the primary contact for the grant, will answer questions. The format will be similar to that of in-person office hours in an academic setting. You can contact Brady directly via email at [email protected].
Watch the replays of our previous Q+A sessions here.
Submit your application here by September 30, 2020 at 11:59PM ET to be considered.
