Templates and Guidance for Proposal Submissions
Though templates and guidance are shared below, not all competitions require every one of these forms and specific guidance varies with each competition. Refer to the specific RFP/RFA you are responding to, or communications from IISG staff, for exactly what should be included with your submission.
If you have issues with these templates, please request assistance rather than altering the forms.
90-4 Budget Form (zipped file that contains the Excel form)
Abbreviated Environmental Compliance Questionnaire (Microsoft Word)
Purdue University Entity Profile (Fillable PDF, not required for applicants from Purdue University or Purdue University Northwest)
Purdue University Letter of Intent Form (Fillable PDF, not required for applicants from Purdue University or Purdue University Northwest)
Data Management Plan (Microsoft Word, this format for the data sharing and management plan is not required, but may be helpful)
Budget Forms and Narrative (PDF) *All projects require a 90-4 form for each year of funding plus a separate narrative. Multi-year projects should also include a 90-4 for the entire project (i.e., if requesting support for a 2-year project, provide a 90-4 for Year 1, a 90-4 for Year 2, and a 90-4 for the total funding request over both years).
General Guidance for Project Summary and Proposal Narrative/Plan of Work (PDF) As of 2023, many of the opportunities available via Illinois-Indiana Sea Grant contain all instructions in the RFP. This document is currently still available as it has been helpful to past applicants; however, always refer first and foremost to guidance in the RFP/RFA or communications from IISG staff about the competition you are applying to.
