Developing the Proposal

To ensure that professional development is written correctly into a proposal, you may want to help write the grant. A successful grant proposal is one that is concise, well prepared, and thoughtfully planned. Consider the following questions as you develop the proposal:

  • What is the need and how does the proposal address this need?
  • What is the basic concept of the project?
  • How does this project reinforce the school's mission?
  • How does the professional development support the project's goal?
  • How compelling is the case for this project?
  • What partnerships and community support can be written into the proposal?

Collect as much information and data that will support the proposal and on the need to be addressed so the position is well documented when presented to all stakeholders.
