How to Select a Sponsor

Regardless of the funding agency to which you apply, keep certain matters firmly in mind:

  •  Know your sponsoring agency's objectives.
  •  Determine the sponsoring program's focus.
  •  Determine whether or not geographic limitations exist.
  •  Identify the funding limits.
  •  Find out when the deadline is and meet it; be aware of the length of time for the review and the date when the awards will be announced.
  • Determine whether or not there are any other award policies that might have a bearing on your project.

Information about the Sponsor's overall objective can be found on its website, or in reports that it publishes. Information about the other items can be found in the funding opportunity, often referred to as a Program Announcement, Request for Proposal, Notice of Funding, etc.
