GRANT APPLICATION PROCEDURE
We intend to keep our application process lean and efficient. In many of our projects Imitatio is an active participant and involved from the beginning in scoping and planning. For those interested in applying for a grant, we request they submit the following information:
A short statement of purpose and project summary that includes, the project description, list and background of participants/collaborators, audiences reached, timing or deadlines, budget and intended outcome
Imitatio will review the proposal and may request additional information or clarification. Based on the quality of the proposed project and alignment with Imitatio’s goals, Imitatio will respond with a decision within 6 weeks. We review proposals on a rolling basis, however, proposals for new grants should ideally be submitted by September 15th for inclusion in the upcoming year’s budget.
While we fund and support a great variety of activities and initiatives, we prioritize projects with the following characteristics:
be the highest quality of work or caliber of partner possible
offer new or advancing efforts that change the landscape
have a multiplier effect vs single individual impact
reach several priority audiences
Our target audiences include:
Intellectual mainstream, Academics, Students, Journalists/bloggers, Religious leaders/communities
Projects we have funded include:
Translations, books, new research publications, workshops/seminars, conferences and we are looking to do more with journalism and blogs.
