Don’t worry if this process sounds daunting! Your on-campus Boettcher mentor, along with us at the foundation, will help you through each stage of the process.

You’ll need to submit a letter of inquiry, review your initial proposal with your campus Boettcher mentor, make the edits and then submit your final proposal to the Boettcher Foundation on the current scholar resources portal. We’re here to help you! Submitting a professional grant application is a valuable experience and we want each of you to succeed. Feel free to contact us at the foundation or your mentor for additional help.
If your project proposal is accepted, you’ll submit an evaluation report and a thank you letter to the Boettcher Foundation Trustees upon completing your experience.
