Proposals to Associations, Societies and Councils

Most voluntary organizations have preprinted application forms. The Division of Research Program Development includes an extensive list of non-federal funding sources on the Funding Opportunities page. Most applications are short and their style should not be as technical as a federal application. While federal projects are reviewed entirely by a panel of experts in the field, non-federal groups often use a heterogeneous group of civic leaders, professional experts and organization staff for their reviews.
