Ideal Nominees

The following are examples of areas of where grant professionals may have demonstrated exceptional commitment, outstanding achievements, and enduring impact include:

• A grant professional/trainer who has made contributions to the grant profession through exceptional commitment, outstanding achievements, and enduring impact. The grant professional/trainer assisted with developing the grant profession, and contributing as a vital resource for the nation, local communities and society as a whole.

• A student who is being nominated for his or her achievements in the grant profession must have assisted with developing the grant profession and contributing as a vital resource for the nation, local communities and society as a whole.  Student/interns will be considered primarily on their achievements as a grant professional student/intern. Consideration will be given to their achievements on the college level. Character during and after their grant profession and academic years, however, will be a major consideration.

• A mentor/coach will be considered primarily for his or her achievements in the grant profession as a mentor or coach. Additional consideration will be given to the nominee’s achievements as a collegiate or professional coach. The nominee’s character, both in the grant profession and other levels will also receive primary consideration.

• A grant administrator will be considered primarily on the merits of his or her service as a grant professional administrator at the federal, state, and/or county level. 

• A reviewer will be considered primarily on the merits of his/her service as a grant professional reviewer.

• A volunteer who has made contributions to the grant profession in some capacity other than those previously mentioned such as serving and/or assisting the grant field through development and contribution without compensation for their services.

These examples are included for expediency in understanding the primary area in which an individual is to be considered for his or her achievements in the grant profession.
“These individuals may include student, mentor/coach, grant administrator, reviewer, grant professional/ trainer, or distinguished volunteer.”
