UCA Foundation Faculty Grant Application

UCA Foundation Faculty Grants

The digital application for a faculty grant award is broken down into four sections: (1) Program Description and Purpose, (2) Community Engagement, (3) Timetable, and (4) Budget. The information below is intended to provide the applicant with detail as it relates to the desired content of each section of the grant application. These content descriptions may also help you determine whether or not your project is suitable for this particular grant
  • This section should serve as an executive summary of the proposed project. Clearly describe what the project will involve and what purposes will be served by the activity. This section can also state how the project contributes and aligns with the objectives of your academic unit and the goals of UCA.
  • This section should describe how the project engages the community. Explain how the project amplifies the partnership between UCA and the communities it serves.
  • This section should clearly explain the timetable for your project. Information regarding when the actual project will take place should be included. It is important to note that no awards will be granted retroactively. If the project takes place prior to the award date (11/10/2018), the grant will not be funded.
  • This section should provide details about the total costs of the project and should include all relevant sources of funding. All funding proposals should itemize key elements of the project accompanied by well-researched estimates of the costs associated with each item. Below is an example of an itemized budget that might be submitted in a typical UCA Foundation grant application. In the example, please note the level of detail in the cost itemization, the inclusion of a total budget for the project, and the disclosure of all sources of funding that will be used to complete the project.
