Assignment 2: final project: writing the grant part 2: methodology

The methodology section is one of the core components of the grant. This section is concerned with addressing the question: “How will you carry out the project?” (Gitlin & Lyons, 2014, p. 92). For example, if your proposal is for a nonprofit-related project, you might identify the population served or indicate who will receive services. Depending on the grant type, you may also include the research sample and associated inclusion criteria. A research proposal may also include the research design strategy, assumptions, validity, reliability, statistical analysis, timeline, and evaluation plans. Finally, in this section you may address human resources requirements and materials or supplies needed to complete the project. 

In recent years, evaluation plans have become increasingly important to prospective funders. Competition for grants is intense, and funders must feel confident that money will be well spent and that projects can be appropriately evaluated. This is an important consideration for the grant seeker as well. Your organization will also want to be assured that the time and effort put into a project proves that the objectives are met and if not, why.

For this Assignment:

  • Review the Final Project Guidelines provided in this      module’s Learning Resources.
  • Carefully review your Gitlin & Lyons text, the      University of Wisconsin-Extension resource, and the Community Tool Box      resource as well as other Learning Resources that focus on methodology and      evaluation. You may also find additional online information from reputable      grant-related organizations, such as Foundation Center and individual      private funders.
  • Remember that this content must demonstrate that it      addresses funder interests as well as the grantee perspective.

In 3–5 pages, provide your Methodology and Evaluation Plans.

In developing the methodology for your project, keep these thoughts in mind:

  • A project should undertake only activities that will      move it toward the objectives.
  • If any activities are not necessary for reaching the      objectives, do not include them in the proposal.
  • The methodology includes the day-to-day, week-to-week,      and/or month-to-month activities that will be carried out during the      project period.

The Methodology includes:

  • Program description
  • Research design
  • Human subjects (sample)
  • Study validity and reliability
  • Assumptions and limitations
  • Time line
  • Analysis (and/or see Evaluation below)
  • Non-personnel resources
    • Facilities, supplies, technology, etc.
    • Any non-personnel resources that will appear in the       proposal budget should be described
  • Personnel resources
    • Who will be assigned or hired?
  • Management plan (Work plan)
    • Who will be responsible for which activities
    • What is the timeline associated with activities (first       quarter, second quarter, third quarter, fourth quarter, ongoing)?
    • How will the project be managed?

The Evaluation Plan includes:

  • Description of the specific criteria that will measure      the success of the project
  • Explanation of data that will be collected 
    • Verify if your grant application will require an       institutional review board (IRB) approval.
  • Explanation of the data collection plans at the      beginning, mid-program, and final evaluation
  • Evaluation instruments that will be used and an      explanation of why these instruments were selected
  • Plans for writing the periodic reports to keep the      funder updated
