All proposals must be submitted using The Clowes Fund’s online application process. The Fund approaches the grant proposal process in two phases: preliminary and final.
If your organization has not received a competitive grant from the Fund within the past five years (2008-2012), you must submit a Preliminary Proposal for consideration. Preliminary Proposals, required for all new grant seekers, are accepted upon posting of these guidelines through November 1st.
If your organization has received a competitive grant from the Fund in the past five years (2008-2012), you may skip the Preliminary Proposal process; however, we encourage you to contact Fund staff for guidance before you invest in the development of a Final Proposal. We recommend a brief summary of intent sent by e-mail well in advance of the proposal deadline. Final Proposals are due no later than February 1st.
