Tips for Better Funding Applications

Minor factors in funding applications may end up critically impacting the funding provided to a team. A few tips may be of help in getting the funding you need:

  • Ensure that the team and Principal Applicant meet the requirements listed on the specific fund’s website.
  • Develop an accurate and accountable budget with enough detail before applying.
  • Read the application very carefully. Answer any questions concisely and logically.
  • Pay attention to professionalism – grammar, required font, word count etc.
  • Discuss the application with the Engineering Teams Coordinator and your faculty advisor at least a week prior to deadline – they may have helpful feedback for you.
  • Submit the application before the deadline. Late applications are not accepted and may jeopardize the team’s financial situation.
