Please note: PARSA CF no longer accepts grant applications. This page is part of the last grant round PARSA CF made, the 2010 Mehrgan Grant Cycle, also known as the Big Give.  

Applicants should complete an online Application Form for the 2010 Mehrgan grant cycle as soon as possible after receiving an invitation from PARSA CF to submit an application. 

If you are invited to submit a full application, please notice that:

  • Applications are due August 15, 2010.
  • Like the LOI form, you cannot save the application form and finish it later. Please prepare the answers separately, and paste the answers into the form when you are ready to submit.
  • The form allows you to attach supporting documents in case you need to supply more information. Please make sure that your supporting documents are in PDF format.
  • Along with the grant application, PARSA requires all grantseekers to submit a budget worksheet. Please review the spreadsheet, fill it out, and attach it to your submission.

Applications are the second step in the process of applying for a grant from PARSA. Grantseekers must submit a Letter of Inquiry (LOI) form by June 15, 2010 in order for PARSA CF to determine whether they are eligible to be invited to submit an application for this grant cycle. No application will be accepted without an existing LOI followed by an invitation from PARSA CF.

All grant applications will be ranked by an independent grant advisory committee (GAC) using this scorecard. Based on the rankings of the GAC, the Board of Directors of PARSA CF will approve final grant awards and applicants will be informed whether they have received a grant or not.
