Provide a two page (try to stay as close to two pages as possible) white paper (does not
include other template information above) expanding on your topic. The two-page white
paper should go more in depth than the topic overview but be written in a manner that is
non-technical and not steeped in academic prose. Your topic/research project should try to
address as many of the elements below as possible:

   1. Provide a narrative describing the project, including background, need and use of
      funding.
   2. Describe the national significance of this project.
   3. Describe the importance of this project to Pennsylvania.
   4. Describe the anticipated benefit of this project to the local community.
   5. State any benefits this project will have with respect to economic development, job
      growth/training, energy efficiency, environmental restoration/protection, safety,
      health care, education and agriculture (this list is not exclusive). Please list any
      other benefits that you wish to be considered.
   6. What are the specific goals of this project? How will you measure success?
   7. Provide a rationale for why Congress should consider funding this project,
      including why it is a valuable use of taxpayer funds.
   8. Why IUP?
   9. Does IUP have a history (credible track record) of expertise/success that would
       provide supporting strength?
   10. Cause and effect? This means you should have a problem/cause statement and then
       address how your research/project would begin to address the problem/cause. If
       possible, how your research would incorporate clear measurable data that could
       solve the problem/cause.
   11. If your project can save a great deal of money to a large government agency’s
       bottom-line, make sure that is stated clearly and how.
   12. If your project/research can save lives, make sure you state that clearly and how.
   13. If your project/research can “domesticate” or keep jobs and/or research in the
       United States, make sure that is stated clearly and how.
   14. The “so what factor.” Ask yourself or others to evaluate the “so what” factor: …so
       what makes this so critically important, so interesting, so innovative, so
       groundbreaking research, so good that you are compelled to advance it…so what
       makes someone say WOW!

You will also be given feedback from the IUP Lobbyist and IUP Appropriations Team as to
current trends and possibly specific things to address during a conference call if your topic
is chosen to move forward in the process.

PLEASE MAKE NOTE OF ANY PREVIOUS OR EXISTING FEDERAL FUNDING BY
INDICATING THE AGENCY NAME, AMOUNT RECEIVED AND THE DATE. In
addition, please identify funds from public, non-federal sources, including local, regional or
State funding (dollar amount, source and percentage of total cost). Also, please identify funds
from private sources (dollar amount, source and percentage of total cost).
