Broader Impacts

Rather than "re-inventing the wheel" each time broader impacts are required for a proposal, just tap into these already-existing K-State programs. They have recruitment, retention, and outreach networks in place so you do not have to build them. This approach will allow you to use your budget more efficiently, and you will win points with your granting agency for leveraging existing resources. Including these programs in your budget helps these already proven programs become more self-sustaining and diversify their client and subject matter base.

Watch an information session (video) on using existing campus programs to help meet the broader impact requirements.
