Submitting a grant proposal can feel overwhelming. You may discover that you have to gather a lot of information before you can begin an application. You also may need to refine the description of your project and its potential impact.

Start early. If your idea involves partners in other departments or organizations, begin talking with them as soon as possible. Draft your project narrative and budget many weeks before the deadline. Seek others' feedback as you revise.

The Grants Office can review drafts or help you fine-tune your project with the funder's priorities in mind. Contact us at grantsoffice@amherst.edu.
