32 32 © 2009 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved.Cisco Confidential  Cisco Networking Academy at Moraine Valley Community College has been awarded over $10 million in grant funding  As a result, it has several best practices to share regarding grant submissions

33 33 © 2009 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved.Cisco Confidential Top Ten Rules to Successful Grant Submission 1.Identify champions that have a vision and can identify a need 2.Demonstrate that you have a vision and a plan to meet achieve the vision 3.Identify goals that align to the grant issuing organization 4.Highlight the merit and relevance 5.Make sure your plan is clear and precise with goals, objectives and measures 6.Does your proposal have broader impact? 7.Identify partners (academic, business) 8.Make sure you know the rules and requirements for the grant programs 9.Measure the effectiveness of the budget 10.Make sure you include people that have the qualification and experience to manage the project

34 34 © 2009 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved.Cisco Confidential Examples of Merit  Does the project have potential for improving student learning in science or engineering technician education programs?  Are the goals, objectives and outcomes, and the plans and procedures for achieving them, worthwhile, well-developed and realistic?  Are the goals, objectives and outcomes, and the plans and procedures for achieving them, worthwhile, well-developed and realistic?  Is the evaluation plan clearly tied to the project outcomes? Is the evaluation likely to provide useful information to the project and others?  Does the project team have appropriate qualifications to carry out the project? Usually this means knowledge of the technology discipline involved.

35 35 © 2009 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved.Cisco Confidential Examples of Broader Impacts  Does the project work with employers to address their current and future needs for technicians?  Has an assessment of workforce needs for technicians been conducted?  Will the project evaluation inform others through the communication of results?  Are the results and products of the project likely to be useful at other institutions?
