Application Strategy

  • Start from the ground up - we need to build a narrative arc of current and past activities that lead to the OSE vision for the future. The first step is the logic model template below.
  • A clear story of what OSE is and what will accomplish will drive the application.
  • Goal is to submit before February 1, 2022.
