Submit the Grant Summary Sheet
to the appropriate Vice President for his or her approval, and to the Dean of Research, Planning, and Grants for purposes of grant tracking and coordination.Step 3: Writing
Several grant writers work with the college on an as-needed basis. After the project receives approval from the appropriate Vice President, a grant writer can be assigned to assist the project proposer, if requested.Step 4: Submission
Submission to the funding agency requires approval from the Superintendent/President and the Vice President of Administrative Services. The project proposer submits the final proposal, with assistance from others as necessary. The Grant Summary Sheet for the project is also sent to the Superintendent/President's office for inclusion in the Board of Trustees packet for the next Board meeting.
