Request for Proposal

Project 4: Proposal Instructions Request for Proposals (RFP)

Write a solicited proposal in response to the following RFP:

The Tigers in Action Foundation seeks to strengthen the relationship between East Central University and the surrounding communities through the active engagement and leadership of alumni and students. The Tigers in Action Foundation is seeking proposals for Community Outreach Grants of up to $1500 for student-led projects that involve ECU students in meeting community needs.

Proposals should include:

  1. Title page listing title of project, name of author, and date of application

  2. Executive summary no longer than one page

  3. Introduction explaining background and community need

  4. Project plan with measurable goals

  5. Credentials of participants

  6. Detailed Budget and timeline

  7. Conclusion

Note: This is hypothetical RFP designed for instruction and practice. No real money is being offered. However, your project should be designed to meet a real community need, and you may choose to reach out to a community organization or ECU academic department to share your ideas.


A RFP will not usually state a prescribed number of research sources, but an application grounded in current research will be more competitive. For this project, include a minimum of five research sources, and list them in a references section at the end of your proposal. Cite your sources in APA style.

Document Design

Because it is not an academic paper, your proposal will not follow APA formatting for document design. You will use APA-style citations on your references page, but the rest of your proposal should be designed for attractiveness and readability. Use layout, graphics, and typographical elements to assist your reader in navigating your document.

Grading Criteria

The specific rubric for evaluating this project is on page 2 of this document. Use it as a checklist for evaluating your own work before you submit it to be graded.
