Online Tutorials

Material in these tutorials was current for the 2012-3 grant cycle. Some of the information about the award amounts and some budget and application details have changed, although the general information in them may be helpful to you. Please see the notes below that call out specific changes.

Tutorial 1: About the Grant, and Eligibility Requirements:  http://youtu.be/4pkpaFXIRzo

Updates: This year the total award sum is $60,000, and grants will be available at the $6,000 and $2,000 level, with 2 R&D grants from last year eligible to apply for a further $4,000 each. Please note that the 2016-17 deadline is March 21 at 11.59 PM. Previous Rocket Grants recipients are only ineligible to apply if they received an award in the previous year (2015). Please check the Application Guide 2016 for accurate dates for eligibility regarding recent graduation from college (changed this year) and the term of the award (generally three years later than shown in the tutorial).

Updates: Call for Entry updated their website over the course of 2012, and so the pages look a little different from those shown in the tutorial. Also, the formatting requirements for digital images have changed. For accurate information see this Information For Digital Formatting and Uploading 2016.

Tutorial 6: Preparation of a Budget:  http://youtu.be/BUGVFc3ok-I

Updates: After double clicking on a cell in Excel to change the text, hit return to exit the cell. This year, with the increased award sum, there will be a higher percentage (15%) of funds withheld from the award until the project has been completed and documentation has been received. See the Rocket Grants budget instructions 2016-17 for accurate information. Also, please note the deadline for 2016-17 is March 21.
