  • For each team member, include Profession, Qualification, Organization/Affiliation, and Location (please do NOT mention names)

  • More information on Needs Analysis on the OAD website. Please include links to research evidence where available

  • Select SDGs relevant to your project. For detailed descriptions of the SDGs, please visit the UN website. Please also have a look at UN SDG Indicators, which attach concrete goals to the SDGs to enable stakeholders "to monitor progress, inform policy and ensure accountability".


  • Outcomes define the change(s) that you hope to achieve through your project. For example, increase in literacy levels, increased knowledge of Astronomy etc. Deliverables are the products of your project that will help you to achieve these outcomes. For example, curriculum resources, teacher training material etc.


  • List all project deliverables (with brief description) and target date of completion for each deliverable. Examples of major deliverables are workshops, events, presentations, lectures, videos, manuals etc.

  • For example, does your project improve, expand or build on ideas that have been tried in other countries or contexts, incorporate lessons from other projects addressing the same challenge, draw from any research evidence? etc. More information on research evidence libraries and search our past funded projects

  • For example, safety and security, financial, unintended consequences on target audience, etc. More information on challenges and lessons from previous projects

  • Not all factors will be relevant for every project, but here are some examples of ways to think through accessibility and inclusivity:
    • Gender - Will you check project teaching materials for gendered language or imagery (e.g. did you include images of female scientists)? Will university students with childcare responsibilities be given extra support to attend your summer school?
    • Diversity - Will your audience include individuals from different cultures or ethnicities? Are children from disadvantaged socio-economic as likely to benefit as others? Will you offer halal or kosher snacks?
    • Accessibility - Will your project be wheelchair accessible? Can colour blind students read your graphs? How much would it cost to print a braille version of your written materials? Can you include sub-titles in your videos?

  • List Key Project Tasks and their expected timeline.
    Examples of Key Project Tasks are implementation of activities, materials production etc.

  • 18. Budget

  • Complete the Budget for the entire project and Not just for the amount requested from the OAD (Item and description - Estimated Cost in Euros)
