Ambassador Grant Selection Process

Please be sure to review the following points below to understand the selection process.

Compliance: Applications will be reviewed by the Chair of the Grants Committee for compliance with the  submission requirements, blinded, and then forwarded on to the committee for review, scoring, and a determination of awardees.

Evaluation: Blinded versions of the applications will be reviewed by the full membership of the Grants Committee using the Criteria for Selection. Each member of the committee will evaluate all submitted applications independently using the Ambassador Grant Scoring Rubric. Next, the individual evaluations are shared with the full committee and discussed by the group. Applications will be selected for funding on the basis of their merit and operationalized in the Criteria for Selection.

Voting: Selection is made by a simple majority vote of the Grants Committee.

Notification: The Grants Committee Chair will notify the applicants of both selected and non-selected applications of the committee's decision and provide some feedback on the application based on input from the Grants Committee. Unsuccessful proposals can be re-submitted for consideration at another time
