When a funding agency is deciding whether to grant money to a project, they want to know that it will be used well and in a timely manner. When communicating this information, graphic organizers can help the reader understand the information more clearly.

  • Create two graphics for this assignment, using your Proposal for their content.
  • First, create a table for your budget. This site offers some examples of budget tables for grant proposals: Contents of a Proposal Budget
  • Second, create a Gantt chart for your schedule. This simple tutorial explains how to make a Gantt chart in Microsoft Excel: Gantt Chart in Excel
  • Microsoft Excel is a good tool for creating both of these graphics, but your Proposal will be delivered in Microsoft Word. Import both of these graphics into a Word document and upload it.
