- The first step in the Application Process is for the Executive Director of your Association to schedule a phone call with the EE Ford Foundation's Executive Director. No proposal can be considered from schools that have not reserved a place on an upcoming Agenda. You may request placement on an Agenda by calling the office or by filling out an Agenda Placement Request.
- After this phone call, if your association is placed on an Agenda, you will receive an Agenda Placement Confirmation Letter with further instruction. Only once you have received that letter should you begin the online application.
- Set up a 2-3 hour meeting between your Executive Director and our Executive Director to be held in our Brooklyn office.* Preliminary application materials are due one week prior to this meeting (see Requirements Checklist tab).
- Deadline for submission of final materials is April 1.
*Due to COVID-19, the Foundation is not requiring any meeting to take place in-person. Instead, meetings will be conducted via Zoom, unless all parties agree otherwise.
