PhilaSoup Application: Spring 2017
Interested in presenting an idea that will impact students in Philadelphia at the next PhilaSoup event on Sunday, April 30th? You’ll need to fill out this PhilaSoup Grant Application.

All proposals will be reviewed by the PhilaSoup External Review Committee. All applications will be evaluated on the following criteria:

-Student Impact: The project should directly impact a specific group of students in Philadelphia and the project should go above and beyond daily instruction, in order to create a meaningful learning experience for students.

-Feasibility: The project should have a realistic budget and timeline. If the project cannot be fully funded with a PhilaSoup grant (see information below regarding grant size), the application should describe additional sources for funding. The project should be implemented within the current school year.

We are accepting proposals until Saturday April 1st. The top three applications will have an opportunity to present at our Spring Soup on April 30th. All applicants will be notified within a week of the application deadline. Presenters are expected to respond to PhilaSoup correspondences within 24 hours or forfeit your entry.

All selected presenters will be given 5 minutes to present their project at PhilaSoup's April 30th brunch, followed by a Q&A with attendees. If your project is selected, you will be provided with information about presentation structure and setup, and we ask that all presenters submit any slides they'd like to include with their talk by April 28th.

Attendees will vote on the project they like best and the project that receives the most votes will receive the largest percentage of the grant pool for that Soup. Subject to the specific limitations below, the first place winner will receive 50% of the total grant pool, the second place winner will receive 30% of the grant pool and the third place winner will receive 20% of the grant pool.

GRANT SIZE: Grants will only be awarded up to the maximum amount requested by the presenter and will be limited to a maximum amount of $599. For example, if your project has a budget of $250, and you are the first place winner, even if 50% of the grant pool is $300, you will receive $250. If your project has a budget of $700, no matter what percentage of the grant pool you receive, the maximum amount you can receive is $599.

By submitting this application, you are agreeing that if you are selected and receive a PhilaSoup grant, you are required to follow up with PhilaSoup with respect to the implementation of the project for which you received funds, and you may be asked to appear at or attend a future PhilaSoup event.
