Develop Project Idea

Before starting a search for funding opportunities, clarify your project. Draft a brief statement (a 2 – 3 page outline) of the project using the outline below. It does not require a detailed description, and can be used to more effectively search for funding opportunities. Engage Pacific's grant officers and discuss your preliminary plans with potential co-investigators, collaborators, dean or director and department chair.

Problems, Needs, Knowledge

Identify a problem, need or gap in services for a project you want to accomplish. Funders most often offer support for projects that best match their organizational interests and priorities. The problem presented in your project indicates why this project is essential.
