Note: External mini-grants, pre-proposals, and letters of intent require the grant approval protocol.
All proposals to external funders -- no matter how small -- require internal college approval prior to submission. Many letters of intent are actually preliminary or mini-proposals designed to screen out the applicant pool. Small grants and sub-grants, in proportion to the dollars you may receive, often carry disproportionately heavy administrative requirements and significant commitments of inkind college resources. Sub-grants may include formal partnership agreements with other lead-applicant organizations and activities you and students perform as representatives of Springfield College.
