Grant Guidelines

Guidelines for The Eisenhower Society Grant Program

  1. The purpose of the Eisenhower Society’s grant program is to support the Society mission:  The Eisenhower Society is dedicated to promoting the memory and legacy of leadership of Dwight D. Eisenhower, the five-star general of the U.S. Army during World War II who became the world’s most trusted figure and the 34th President of the United States, through educational programs, scholarships, grants, and special events.
  2. Applications will be judged on the quality of the overall proposal.
  3. Priority will be given to proposals that most reflect the Eisenhower Society mission, have the most efficient use of funds and obtain an effective evaluation.
  4. The budget submitted must list materials and reflect accurate costs.  Supporting documentation will be helpful. That is Requests for Proposals, bids for work estimates to do the project, supply costs, hotel room rates, etc.  Substitutions will not be permitted unless the material is no longer available at the time of actual purchase.
  5. The funds may be used to purchase materials, supplies and equipment related to the proposal and to pay the fees of resource people for their participation in the projected programs.  Proposals just for equipment alone will not be funded.
  6. Projects must begin within six (6) months of the application and must be completed 1-year after funding.
  7. Please submit three (3) copies of complete grant request.
  8. Grant applications are reviewed September 1 through October 1, annually.
