A successful application will be fully completed, with all boxes filled out. The application will include a detailed budget, with multiple quotes for each item. A detailed estimation of the number of graduate students this will benefit will also be included. A letter from the department/chair is preferable if possible, either to confirm their endorsement or detail their ability to split funding. A successful application generally provides a tangible positive benefit on the UW main or satellite campuses, and typically does not involve a small team competing outside of the university (although there are always exceptions to the rule). Departments should attempt to only submit one application a term (maximum), and the application should be representative of a decent portion of the departments graduate students (if the application is department specific). Applications from undergraduate groups may be considered if they have a tangible benefit to graduate students.
