Ambassador Grant Preparing a Proposal

A completed proposal must include:

1) A description of how attending the conference will further her/his professional development and support her/his attendance to the Ambassador’s conference (e.g., to present). The applicant should establish clear connections between NEAIR and the Ambassador’s conference. Additionally, the applicant needs to thoughtfully discuss how s/he plans to share what s/he learns from that conference at an upcoming NEAIR Annual Conference. This may include a presentation of what was given at the Ambassador’s conference.

2) A statement of financial need and a detailed budget is part of the narrative. The budget should include all expected expenses and specify matching funds and sources of those matching funds. Please see the Projected Budget Template as an example.

3)  Include a letter from the applicant’s institution (if applicable) that certifies that the institution is willing to handle the funds at no cost to NEAIR or to the grant. Specify the agency (i.e., the college or university itself vs. a university foundation) to which the award will be made if approved.

This application should not exceed three pages. See the Criteria for Selection to inform your proposal.
