                          Program Funding Proposal Criteria

Please thoroughly review the Request for Proposals (RFP) document. Funding proposals must
address the following criteria, in a continuing document, complying with the cited word limits for
each section.

          Proposal Rationale (300-word limit): Cite the reason your institution is interested in
           administering an AAMI program. Highlight any current expertise in this area.

          Goals and Objectives (500-word limit): How will the program seek to enhance the
           enrollment, retention or graduation of Black males or increase the number of degrees
           conferred upon Black males at your institution?

          Target Cohort (200-word limit): Be specific. Cite specific number and class levels
           (e.g, freshmen, sophomores, etc.) of the students that will be served, and their
           characteristics. (For example, 100 new freshmen or 25 rising juniors at your institution?)
           Describe specifically how students will be identified/recruited for the project.

          Personnel/Staffing (200-word limit): Be specific. Cite specific number of staff,
           including names and titles, and the percentage of employees’ work that will be dedicated
           solely to this AAMI project.

          Specific/Documented Role of Civic Partner: How will the initiative involve an
           organization/entity already engaged in work with African-American males in the
           institutional service area? (Official documentation/Letter(s) of Commitment explaining
           the specific role of the partner(s) is required. Limit: 3 letters.)

          Program Budget (No more than 2 pages): What are the specific resources (e.g., staff,
           equipment, programmatic) needed to implement/administer the proposed program and
           what are the specific associated costs? Please specify the fund source for each of these
           budget items (AAMI grant versus matching/institutional funds). NOTE: AAMI funds
           should be used for programmatic activities, not equipment purchases.

          Proposed Outcomes (500-word limit): What measurable barometer movement does the
           initiative seek to achieve (e.g., what percentage increase in Black male enrollment in fall
           2010? what percentage increase in retention rates for Black males at your institution?
           what percentage increase in graduation rates or increase in the number of degrees
           conferred upon Black males)?

          Requested Funding Amount/Institutional Match/Program Sustainability (100-word
           limit): Cite the specific amount of the grant being requested, which must be matched at
           least equally by institutional/ partner sources. If this is a continuing program, also
           please indicate what efforts and steps have been taken to sustain the program beyond
           AAMI funding since the program’s inception.
