The office of marketing announces a Website Grant Program for FY 16 and beyond. This school-wide program will help the office of marketing prioritize and provide comprehensive web services to faculty and staff at Cummings School with a need for web-based projects requiring specialized web and marketing communications expertise. Recipients receive a “grant” from the office of marketing for technology, time and resources to complete identified projects.
The Website Grant Program will help provide a mechanism to proactively identify school web needs, offer campus-wide transparency and help offer a mechanism for school leadership to collaborate with marketing to prioritize upcoming web projects. The Dean’s Council will partner with the office of marketing to review applications and select grant recipients to help ensure the most strategic and beneficial projects are scheduled for website development.
Twice a year (see timelines below) the office of marketing will announce a “call for submissions” to the Website Grant Program”, review received submissions in partnership with Dean’s Council and select projects based strategic importance to Cummings School’s mission and resource availability. Once grant recipients are selected the office of marketing will schedule kickoff meetings and schedule projects.
Applicants must submit an application prior to communicated deadlines to be given priority for the upcoming grant cycle. In very extreme circumstances an application may be submitted for consideration by the office of marketing and Dean’s Council mid-cycle; however projects accepted outside the initial grant cycle may cause previously accepted projects to be postponed or delayed. Therefore, significant strategic importance must be communicated to have a web project considered for mid-cycle review. Any delays will be communicated to all parties involved in the process.
The office of marketing and Dean’s Council will review applications for (technical and resource) feasibility and expected timelines. Final decisions will be based on:
