<aside> 📌 We recently introduced the new Stacks Grant Dashboard. This resource goes in-depth on the application, assessment and payment processes. You can learn more about the information architecture behind the program here.



The development the Grants Dashboard provided us with an opportunity to interrogate this process from top to bottom and refine it to best meet the needs of our community. Below you will find a detailed description of revisions to the overall process, the application process, assessment process, and payment process.

Grant Phases

As noted here, the review process for all grants consists of four Grant Phases. Grantees advance from one phase to the next once their application is marked Approved:

Pre-Review Cycle Meet with Ambassadors to ensure applications are ready for Full Review.
Full Review Cycle Meet with Ambassadors (and in some cases additional domain experts) for grant approval.
Progress Review Cycle Once your grant is approved you will have a review for every progress payment.
Final Review Cycle This is part review and part celebration. A chance to show off your work!

*Progress Review Cycle can be skipped with small grants. Large grants or grants with multiple progress payments required, will cycle through this phase multiple times.

Application Process

Currently the Grants Dashboard is only processing applications for Stacks Grants and Wishlist Grants. The details below pertain to only those two types of grants and support for Stacks Residents and Chapter Grants will be provided in the near future:
