- Information will be sent out to members periodically through emails and newsletters. The deadline for mini-grant proposals is March 31st, 2021, or thereafter if allotted funds are still available. Written notice of approval or disapproval will be sent by the Mini-Grant Chair to the contact person upon review of the proposals. For questions or additional information, contact the Mini-Grants Chair Ramona Karsner at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Grants proposals will be competitive. Therefore, close adherence to the format, written communication skills and the specifics of the proposal’s content will all be factors considered by the review committee.
