Call for Proposals, 2014


 Student Grants Program

Call for Proposals  

Submission Deadline: January 18, 2014

Overseen by the African Governing Committee, the Student Grants Program of the Haley McCready Outreach and Development Fund provides grants to Hope Africa University students or graduates who select to submit a proposal with their own ideas for an outreach and development project; a student-generated project idea. Any student or graduate of Hope Africa University, connected with any department or discipline, is eligible. Interested students and graduates are encouraged to submit a proposal describing their ideas and the anticipated, sustainable results.

Consistent with the aims of the Haley McCready Fund (see, applicants must clearly explain how their proposed project will contribute to their own development and the development of the capacity of the project beneficiaries; the people to be served by the project. The projects should be innovative, address obvious needs and have the potential to produce significant change. The proposals must clearly describe how the objectives will be met, how the beneficiaries will be meaningfully involved, how the development benefits will be shared and extended to others (needy individuals, families and community members) and how the project will be sustained through an association, a cooperative or another type of development organization. 

The grants are for the equivalent of up to $1,500.00 US.  The initial funded implementation timeframe will normally be for 12 months but the projects are expected to become self-sustaining and continue long into the future.
