The CoW Grants Committee will review grant applications as soon as they possibly can. The committee is not obligated to move or rush a specific proposal to the review stage and will do so based on its sole discretion.
After the committee reviews applications, the following outcomes are possible:
- The committee finds the application a successful and approves the grant
- The committee denies the grant, and that is the end of the process
- The committee meets with the grant applicant and reworks the application together with the applicant to ensure it aligns well with CGP goals. Once updated, the application may be reconsidered
The CoW Grants Program Committee will show preference toward successful grants in a public forum poll where all committee members are required to vote before moving a grant to its final stage
Grant structuring & management
Once the grant is approved, the committee will outline a series of milestones to be achieved to obtain full funding. Grantees will be compensated for reaching each milestone, successively, and – if they are not achieved – the CoW Grants Committee reserves the right to close the grant or stop payment until specific milestones are achieved
