Guidelines for the Proposal Writer; (Report of the Community College Proposal Writers' Workshop; Boston University, December 14, 1968).
Boston Univ., MA. School of Education.
The first section of this guide is on the mechanics of writing a report or a proposal--the elements of style that make for clarity, brevity, and logical development of the subject. The second section contains advice on the specifics of proposal preparation and submission; i.e., choice of a likely source of funds, preparing the rough draft, obtaining local administrative approval, revision and typing of the material, and having it signed by an officer of the requesting agency. Among details the writer must handle are correct names and titles of personnel in both the asking and granting agencies and the funding source's specifications for number of copies, deadline, format, etc. Under usual circumstances, the proposal will contain a statement of the project's educational significance, its design, hypotheses or objectives, instrumentation, and method of data analysis. To show the feasibility of the study, the writer may describe the qualifications of the candidate for project director, and the available or needed facilities and equipment for the research. He must include an itemized budget and may suggest means of publishing the final report. The third section deals with financial sources for community service programs (regular college funds, enrollee fees, private or special funds) and the best use of each. The guide also covers the use of "The Foundation Directory" and lists selected federal legislation under which funds may be sought for community service programs. (HH)
