Arab Grants requires all organizations seeking funding to submit a completed proposal template, a budget, and a Monitoring and Evaluation Framework. The application should also include the following information as attachments:

-Proof of registration and (if available) a copy of organizational statutes;
- A list of board members, trustees and staff;
- A list of current activities or (if available) a most recent annual report;

Proposal writing can be a challenging enterprise. These guidelines have been prepared to help you. They outline what OSIWA considers the main elements of a grant proposal. We accept proposal in either French or English.

Our tips:

1. Address a need
In preparing the proposal, the organization seeking a grant must demonstrate its capacity to address a need. This need should clearly fall within ARAB GRANTS thematic areas and should prioritize the needs of the community.

2. Research
Before submitting a proposal, the grant seeker should research the funder’s mission, strategic priorities and budget.

3. Structured
Well thought-out, structured and carefully written proposals are more likely to be given favorable attention than those less carefully put together.

4. Additional support
The potential grantee greatly increases the likelihood of receiving funding by seeking support for respective components of its work from the appropriate source.

5. Feasibility
Most funders support a project only when convinced that it is feasible and that the prospective grantee is capable of implementing it.

6. Innovation
As much as possible applicants are encouraged to be creative and think outside-the-box.

Note: A well-written proposal for a weak, unnecessary or unfeasible project or a poorly written proposal for a potentially good project may both be denied funding.
