Submitting Proposals and Reports

For all grants except PEG and Faculty Aide proposals, the bulk of the proposal will be a file you attach to your Microsoft form submission. The file should provide the information as described on the Faculty Development Website.

For PEG proposals, complete the Microsoft form in Experience (under Faculty Development Board) and attach documents confirming acceptance to a conference or workshop. (If you do not receive confirmation prior to the deadline, file your proposal without it. When you receive confirmation, email documentation of your acceptance to the chair of Faculty Development Board.)

  1. Log into Experience (link found under Emails & Portals in the Main Menu from the Wittenberg homepage) using your Wittenberg username and password.
  2. Under the “Faculty Development Board” card, find the desired proposal type and click “Start a new form.” Note: Faculty Aide and PEG proposals have separate forms. For all other types, select the generic “Start a new form” under “Proposals and Forms.”
  3. After selecting “Start a new form”, you will be prompted to enter your Wittenberg username and password to access the Microsoft form
  4. Fill in the form.  (Information can be copied and pasted into the fields.)
  5. Once a proposal is submitted, it cannot be edited.
