To Consider

When evaluating your application, we look for much more than just an explanation of the proposed work. Tell us concretely how you plan to achieve your goals.

Be thorough: We expect you to have made a meaningful effort to validate and refine your approach, researched what other solutions are being developed, and be able to articulate how yours is different.

Dig Deeper: Identify the problem's essence, highlight its significance, showcase the positive impact on Fuse, and align it with our mission.

Think broader: how does your project connect to, complement, and enable the work of others?

Be realistic: We'll consider the funding amount you request concerning the proposed scope of work, so go with a number that reflects what you think you'll need for the specific work in your proposal.
