In order to promote the projects of their partner organizations, Hearts of Gold (HoG) established a grant competition in October 2020. It has been regarded as an informal process and the HoG director explained that she would like our IQP team to create a more structured program. Our team conducted interviews with the HoG director, a judge from the first competition, and sent surveys to past competitors. Surveys were also sent to past applicants of other competitions and the directors of other competitions were interviewed as well. Using all the data collected, the team analyzed practices that would work best for HoG. We created structured grant guidelines that follow the entirety of the competition along with a detailed scoring sheet for judges to evaluate proposals.
