Educational Opportunity Grant Application

To be eligible for a 2016 grant, applications must be received by December 31, 2015. All AAW members are eligible to apply (except for recipients of grants in 2015). The committee will not consider applications that are incomplete or vague, so please take care when applying.

The following tips will help you with your application:

  • Complete the application online. Only online applications will be accepted. Submit well before the deadline!
  • Provide sufficient information so EOG committee members can clearly understand what you are requesting and how you intend to use the funds.

Be concise; make your points directly and clearly.

  • Include details of how you will use the funds. Specific needs should be itemized. Funds will not be granted for miscellaneous, incidental, or unspecified expenses.
  • Explain your educational goal or experience you wish to obtain. Keep in mind these grants are intended for educational purposes. In particular, explain how others will benefit as well.

Grant amounts are limited: up to $1,000 for individuals and students and up to $1,500 for local chapters, schools, and nonprofit organizations. Your total budget may exceed these amounts; however, your grant request should not exceed EOG limits. For special situations, at the discretion of the EOG committee and the AAW board, grants of larger amounts are occasionally available. In addition to EOGs, the committee will award ten certificates for registration to AAW’s 2016 international symposium.

If you have questions, contact Rob Wallace, EOG Committee Chair, at rob@woodturner.org or the AAW office.

 

Tips

We do not recommend that you compose and type answers to grant application directly into the online grant application form. Instead, we recommend that you review the questions, as well as compose and edit the answers for your grant application separately prior to input to the online application form.This technique is especially helpful for the longer, narrative sections of the application and enables you to easily review and edit your answers. Once you have composed your answers separately, you may then simply "paste" the text into the grant application form. You'll be happier with your responses and have a record of what you submitted for future reference.
