Community Colleges should be actively planning their grant applications for the Advanced Technological Education (ATE) grant, a National Science Foundation program that focuses on the education of technicians for the high-technology fields that drive our nation’s economy. The ATE program supports curriculum development; professional development of college faculty and secondary school teachers; career pathways to two-year colleges from secondary schools and from two-year colleges to four-year institutions; and other activities.
Grant Project Service Levels
We have two levels of service that may be the right fit for your team depending on where you are in the ATE application process. These service levels are affordable and designed specifically for community colleges.
Full Project Team
If you have not assembled a project management team, need assistance selecting a program track, have never submitted an ATE grant application before, or simply need an external project team leader and grant writing and review team to guide the entire process, a full project team may be the right choice. This team includes:
- A project manager
- An experienced grant writer from our pool of 250 subject matter experts
- Review/recommendations on concept and strategy
- Guidance on all aspects of application process
- Phone calls/webinars with project manager and writer to organize and develop proposal
- Review of final application prior to submission
- Post-submission assistance regarding agency feedback
If your internal resources have a handle on the grant application and you are confident about the technical aspects of your submission, but you want to ensure the competitiveness of your ATE grant application, then our Review Team may be a good choice. McAllister & Quinn Review Teams:
- Conduct a comprehensive, exhaustive, and extremely fine-grained review and evaluation of your concept, project, and/or grant proposal narrative prior to submission
- Conduct an overall edit for grammar and style
- Offer concrete suggestions that both correctly identified deficiencies and amplify identified strengths in the application
- Conduct a final check to ensure the application adheres to application guidelines
- Help improve the overall competitiveness of your grant application
