Last minute tips

Only a week and a half until proposals are due! Here are a few last minute tips for you.

1. Make sure you reference work, projects or studies similar to yours. Show the judges you have done your research on your topic, and acknowledge the relevant work that has been done to date. 

2. Run your proposal past a trusted professor, advisor or expert from the community for some constructive feedback. As program manager, I am happy to answer specific questions about your proposals, but it will be to your benefit to pass off the proposal to a mentor of sorts for a "pre-review".

3. Keep your proposals to the 20 page limit (plus budget)! The guidelines for length of sub-sections is flexible and only a suggested guideline, but the 20 page limit is firm.

4. While the website states that the deadline is 5pm on March 25, I have announced at workshops and meetings that we will accept submissions that reach my inbox (sageCLC@gmail.com) by 11:59 p.m. on March 25. We recognize that a lot of work can be done in the final hours before a deadline, so hopefully this cushion will help some of you out.

We look forward to receiving your proposals and reading all about your innovative ideas! Best of luck to you all.
