The Field Experience Grant is composed of a written proposal, a budget, and (depending on your project) supplementary materials.

Your proposal needs to be safe, feasible and have learning goals.

Tips for Writing a Solid Proposal

FEG Proposal

If you need help writing your proposal, schedule an appointment with an FEG Student Assistant and review examples of proposals written by FEG alumni.


Once students have formed a plan for their Field Experience Grants, it is required that they put together an itemized budget for their summer plans. Initially, this might sound intimidating, especially if they have never completed a grant proposal before. In actuality, it isn't too difficult.

If you are a Field Experience Grant recipient who might be looking for a refresher on how to create a budget, feel free to check out this video below. It will go over what can and cannot be funded with your Field Experience Grant, as well as how to format your budget.

Supplementary Materials

  • Tax Statement
  • Institutional Review Board (IRB) - IRB approval is needed if you plan on photographing, interviewing, or surveying people. This approval process is separate from the Field Experience proposal. If you wish to develop a project that involves human subjects and requires IRB approval, you must have already taken an appropriate research methods class. It is important to talk to your coach about this process and to start early. You cannot save the online IRB submission form, so please copy and paste the questions into a word document so that you can take your time answering them. Refer to the Frequently Asked Questions for important information.

Submit Your FEG Proposal

Send your FEG proposal draft to your coach by March 18 so that they can suggest revisions. Your final coach-approved proposal and budget is due on April 1.
