Visit the Tips and Examples page to ensure successful proposal submission.
Use the Proposal Submission Checklist [pdf] to ensure proposal includes required information.
Powell Center proposals should be concise (fewer than 2000 words, excluding the cover sheet, citations, references, figures, tables, data management plan, curricula vitae, and budgets), yet must include enough information to allow accurate evaluation. Your reviewers will not necessarily be subject matter experts.
Please number proposal pages and include the following, in the following order, in your proposal:
1. COVER SHEET
2. BODY OF PROPOSAL
3. SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS
Proposals are accepted in digital format only as a single document in either Microsoft Word or PDF.
Format proposals to standard letter size (8.5” W by 11” L), with graphics embedded directly in the document. The body of the proposal should follow the cover sheet. Do not send compressed collections of files, such as .zip files. Proposals including the requested information (cover sheet, body, data management plan, CVs, budget) must be provided as one document; do not send separate files.
The submission of your proposal indicates you are in agreement with and will abide by the Powell Center Code of Ethics.
Send the proposal document as an email attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org. You will receive an email confirming proposal receipt within 24 hours of submission. If you do not receive a confirmation email, have difficulty submitting your proposal, or have extenuating circumstances that prevent you from submitting a digital version of your proposal by the deadline please contact one of the directors.
