Agenda

Day 1 - January 21

  • Workshop Recording
  • Homework:
    • Review the case study of a mock pre-proposal and setting SMART goals. 
    • Complete the POME$ (Problem, Objectives, Methods, Evaluation, $ Budget) worksheet to evaluate the mock pre-proposal. We recommend reading the worksheet first so you know what to be looking for before you start reading the mock pre-proposal. As you’re reading the mock pre-proposal document, consider the following: Are all of the components on the POME$ worksheet included? If not, which ones are missing? Why might that be? (Hint: if you’re unsure what to include in your own pre-proposal, look in the directions or Request For Proposals!) What components of a full proposal are most emphasized in the pre-proposal? 

      • You can think of your pre-proposal as a blueprint for developing a complete proposal. Your most important collaborator/partner is your future self, so set your future self up for success by creating a workable blueprint and setting SMART objectives. SMART objectives are: Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Time-bound. And setting them will guide your understanding of internal capacities and needs of your organization before seeking funding.  

      • Note: You can and should use the POME$ worksheet for your own proposal planning and development, too! It’s also a great tool for quickly identifying the core of your proposal’s contents on the back end. If it’s hard for you to find the information in your completed proposal, chances are it will be hard for the people reviewing it, too.  

      • Once you complete the POME$ workshop, check your answers against the POME$ answer key.

Day 2 - January 26

  • Workshop Recording 
  • Homework:
    • Reviewfull successful proposal 

    • Quickly identify the components on this one-page grant proposal worksheet. This exercise illustrates the fact that reviewers really may only give your proposal one close pass, and highlights the need to be clear and organized in your presentation of the information they are looking for. Also, it’s an expansion of the POME$ worksheet from Day 1 homework, similar to how the full proposal is an expansion of the pre-proposal. 

    • Once you complete the proposal workshop, check your answers against proposal worksheet answer key.
