Hey Everyone!

So Liz and I are applying for the Provost Grant so that we can continue working with IDEPSCA over the summer as well as get them some extra funding. Here is a draft of our proposal – any feedback would be much appreciated.




P.S. for Sasha – There was one question that was constantly irking me as I was drafting: is there typically a works cited for grant applications? Never applied for one before, so I wouldn’t know. 🙂

P.P.S. – The proposal is supposed to be only one page, so I apologize if it seems kinda rushed.

The proposal looks great – if I were the Provost I’d definitely give it to you 😉

re: works cited, it really depends on the grant. In the context of a one pager, I would say use footnotes if possible. If not (because of a web submission form that is text-only) then you could create a refs section at the end or (if you only have one or two cites) just put them in the text body eg (see Modarres and Pitkin, 2008 at

Very excited by this, nice work! re: the mapping w/phones note that you send posts via SMS and MMS (not just SMS). We can actually test it out (vozmob/healthycity maps) in class during our mobile session.
